God, Ron, where to begin? Back in Ur, I suppose, to find out just how the Sumerians bwered, and what it was like drinking beer from a straw. I might miss out the Egyptians, and go straight to Neolithic Britain to try henbane-flavoured ale. Forward another few thousand years to sample the wheat ales bwered at the court of Cunobelinus in Camulodonum in the first century AD. Fire up the Tardis again, and call in at a Saxon alehouse, then on to Southwark around 1460 to try the newfangled “biers” being bwered by immigrants from the Low Countries. Drop in on London again about 1715 to try to find out just what “three-threads” actually was, and what other brews Londoners were drinking at the time. Hop forward another 35 years and try to contrast and compare the porters being bwered by Truman, Halsey, Calvert and Parsons. Swing over to Burton upon Trent around 1780 and sample the beers Bass, Wilson and Worthington were exporting to Russia. Back to London 15 or so years later, drop by the Bow brewery and test the beers George Hodgson was brewing for export to India. Fast-forward four months and sample the same beers in Calcutta or Bombay. Beam into Barclay Perkins about 1800 to snaffle some of the stout being bwered especially for the Russian Emperor. Whizz through Dublin in 1810 to pick up Arthur Guinness’s new extra-stout porter, then go back to London for sampling trips either side of 1819 to try London porters pre- and post-patent black malt. Return to Staffordshire around 1825 for some of the new Burton IPA, then follow that, too, out to India to see how it changed on the journey. London again around 1840 for some mild ales from Godings, Charrington and Courage. Fly over to Plzen in 1842 just in time for the first barrels of Herr Groll’s new pale lager, and ask him where he got the idea from. While we’re in central Europe, see what young Gabriel Sedlmayr is up to in Munich. London again, in 1910, and sample as many different beers, and beer styles, as possible, then jump 25 years and do the same thing again. Finally set the controls for 1955 and take a tour of the British Isles, calling in at breweries I know are going to be closing soon …
for the record, you cnnoat declare yourself a true wisconsinite until you keep beer on your porch and your sconnie husband should know that!although, it’s getting to be that time when you should pull it inside and put it all in the extra beer fridge in the basement. oh you don’t have one of those? in the garage fridge perhaps? no fridge there either? oh boy you gotta get that!
Now that’s the kind of running aritlce I can get my teeth into. For me, something light, but with a lot of character does the trick a nice IPA or something hoppy. Badger’s Hopping Hare was my post North Tyneside 10k tipple.Not sure you can beat a good from-the-hops home brew mind for running related brews, you can’t beat a good batch of Green Bullet hops for a light and tasty brew.
At last! Someone with the insight to solve the prlembo!
