A curious sermon,

Certain men of Prisiall [Preesall, Lancashire], returning from an ale-house and meeting a parson who had lately made a sermon against drunkards, calling them malt-worms, compelled him to preach a sermon on malt. The sermon which follows is on the evils of drink, and is written in the form of an acrostic on the word 'malt'. Dated at Gwydir. Note. This is a variant of the 'Sermon on Malt' said to be by John Dod (?1549-1645). See DNB, vol. xv. There is a slightly different version, with a Welsh translation, in 'Cydymaith diddan' (1766).
