In early 2011, we once again teamed up with Ron Pattinson (our very favorite brewing Historian), to recreate a beer from history. Ron?s taken us back to colonial India in the 1850s. The rum-drinking troops (or ?squaddies?) were dying at alarming rates until a beer sent from London to India saved them. No, that whole IPA story is a bit of a ruse? In fact, India Porters outnumbered Pale Ales 2:1! This recipe dates back to a brewsheet from Barclay Perkins Brewery in London, from 1955.
