British beer production and average OG 1900 - 1933

It seems like there's something I've not done for a while. Something that used to be very important. (No, it's not humour or entertainment.) I remember - a big fat juicy table, dripping with number grease. Best put that right. My weekend was great fun. I spent it scanning 1920's and 1930's editions of the Brewers' Journal. "What are you doing with those stinky books, dad?" Lexie asked. "Harvesting numbers." "Dad, that sounds really boring." It's not exactly my idea of fun, either. But the…

Time for the remaining two classes of pub room: taproom and lounge. "The taproom is the same price as the vault. The same simplicity—it is often like the kitchen of any small farmhouse in the villages outside Worktown.

McEwan's Double Imperial Stout label 1890s(?).

Very profitable McEwan's

There's a big advantage in having breweries public companies. To me, I mean. Because then they have to publish accounts. It's a piece of piss to see how much money they were making.

Shut up about Barclay Perkins

A few more details about the rector appeared in other newspaper reports. I'd wondered whether he had been a Chaplain during WW I. But it turns out that he had only been a clergyman for a couple of years. "Mr Ryder Richardson prosecuting for the Bishop of Winchester, said the rector went to a public school and to Cambridge. He was in the Nigerian administration service and worked for the British Legion. He became a deacon in 1939 and a priest in 1940. . . . He was, it would be stated…

Brewing in 19th-century India

As I've said many times before, I'm easily distracted. The chance find of a reference to Indian-brewed Porter prompted me to dig further. Trying to find out more about Meakin & Co. Here's one of the results. History Of European Brewing In India. The history of the manufacture of malt liquors in India, is, to some extent, the history of a series of unsuccessful efforts at establishing an exotic industry, in a country then unfavourably placed for its prosperity as a remunerative enterprise It…
