Howdy, one of my favorite things to do is read and study about the history of beer. Style origins, fun facts, how beer styles were influenced by events in history...etc. I was wondering if anyone had any beer facts/trivia to share? I have a good one to start the thread off: India Pale Ales (IPAs) weren’t actually brewed in India or first brewed in India, the name comes from pale ales (at this point in history pale ales are pretty much anything lighter than a porter) being sent to India from Britain in the late 1700s. India Pale Ale was a style name that could help market the beer, by making it seem more exotic. When actually, it wasn’t.
