Was water really regarded as dangerous to drink in the Middle Ages?
Posted on March 4, 2014 by Martyn Cornell

It’s a story I’ve been guilty of treating a little too uncritically myself: “In the Middle Ages people drank beer rather than water because the water wasn’t safe.” But is that correct? No, not at all, according to the American food history blogger Jim Chevallier, who calls it The Great Medieval Water Myth

Gruit Britain?

The herb ale 

tradition

I dunno, you wait hundreds of years for a herb-flavoured beer, and then two come along at once. Just coincidence, I’m sure, but two new beers (ales, strictly), from the Pilot brewery in Leith, Scotland, and the Ilkley brewery in Yorkshire, have been announced this week that go back to the pre-hop tradition of flavouring your drink with whatever herbs and plants you could find in the local fields, hedgerows and woods, or up on the local moors. I’m delighted to see them, because I love herb-flavoured ales. I have just one worry, as a historian.

Craft Beer, the (Very) Limited Edition

Two weeks ago, a beer drinker in Fresno, Calif., called Hill Farmstead Brewery in Vermont to ask where he could buy its craft beers. “You have to drive to the airport, get a ticket, fly to Burlington, rent a car and drive an hour and a half to the brewery,” the owner, Shaun Hill, replied with a laugh. But he wasn’t joking.

As part of the new “alcohol-regulations” in Israel - all advertising for alcohol will become illegal - this will include the internet. 

Web-sites, Facebook pages, Tumblr will all be illegal.

- this will really hurt the small craft brewers.

Hipsters Love Beer

Welcome to  Beer Guide to London. It is “A” beer guide rather than “The” beer guide because it in no way intended to be comprehensive. It is a “curated” site — which just means these are the pubs that a couple of beer geeks — Fred and Jezza — happen to like. Jezza lives in London and is the “boots on the ground” while Fred lives in Los Angeles and does the technical stuff (but he often visits London).

Craft Beer Review | Brew Dog Punk IPA

Brew Dog says this beer is a post modern classic pale ale. The flavor was a nice balance of dank sweetness as well as bitter. I feel absolutely comfortable bringing this beer to a party. The Punk IPA has enough complexity and body for the beer connoisseurs as well as drinkable enough for the craft beer noob. Brew Dog sells this as 4 packs of 12 oz. bottles for a reasonable price given the fact that it’s from Scotland.
