From the publisher:
"Raise a glass to vintage beer! Treat yourself to a tour through time with this historical collection of beer recipes from 1800 to 1950. Within these pages, you’ll discover timeless recipes, along with drink profiles, and tales of how these tasty brews became a part of the evolution of beer. Each chapter delves into a different style of beer: porter, stout, pale ale, mild ale, stock ale, burton ale, scotch ale, brown ale, dinner ale, light ale, table beer, and more, and explores the history of each style with recipes representative of different periods in time. Whether you choose to adapt the recipes to suit your palette or recreate them, you’ll bring history to life with each brew you make. Learn how beer has evolved over the last two hundred years and how you can easily recreate authentic recipes right in your own home."
When & Where
Brewers United for Real Potables (BURP) & 3 Stars Brewing Company
Brewers United for Real Potables (BURP) was founded in the fall of 1981 by avid homebrewers. It has grown to be one of the largest homebrew clubs in the world with almost 300 members. BURP's home encompasses the Metropolitan Washington DC area (Northern Virginia and the Capitol Region of Maryland). BURP's mission is to have fun promoting the production and knowledge of good beer. Although BURP's home is in the metropolitan Washington, DC area, anyone is welcome to join. Meetings are held once a month, usually on Saturday, at rotating locations throughout the area.
3 Stars Brewing Company is a brewery delivering on the promise of bringing locally hand crafted artisanal ales to the DC beer community. The company consists of Dave Coleman and Mike McGarvey, two long time friends who decided to seize the opportunity to build a brewery and produce high quality beer for the District of Columbia – hoping to make this world-class city a world-class craft beer destination.
