Dive deep into beer history this week on a special episode of Beer Sessions Radio with Jimmy Carbone and friends. Jimmy's joined by special guest Ron Pattinson, who writes the "Shut up about Barclay Perkins" blog and is the author of The Home Brewer's Guide to Vintage Beer: Rediscovered Recipes for Classic Brews Dating from 1800 to 1965. Tune in and learn about the origins of beers like East India Porter and India Pale Ale and get some great historical anecdotes along the way. Also hear from Dan Paquette of Pretty Things and author Jon Holl. This program was sponsored by GreatBrewers.com.


"The name East India Porter pre-dates India Pale Ale. IPA wasn't used until the 1820's, whereas India Porter dates back to 1804. It's a beer with a pretty long history - and probably fits in very well with modern tastes."

-- Ron Pattinson on Beer Sessions Radio

"If a beer was crappy in 1950 - it should be crappy today!"
