A fine read, but why go ruining a perfectly good belief system with trifling little things like facts? EPA – export pale ale ( meeting the eaely export requirements of alcoholic beverages shipping), […] 1709 when pale ales first began being sold in London. Today’s IPAs are anything but boilerplate, smoothed with wheat or infused with grapefruit, a million tastes to satisfy a million taste buds. I would think the truth lies more in the interstices, by deduction and putting together things from sources which are not always “official” like ads in newspapers, popular accounts and the like, getting the big picture in other words. The “pale ale prepared for the East and West India climate,” as the beer was sometimes touted, likely grew out of October beer, a generously hopped pale beer that was brewed in the fall, suited for extended aging on country estates. […] in the first place, and he stories of a stronger beer brewed especially for export to India are bunk. While that current lack of evidence does not prove evidence will never be found, it does justify the claim that right now “there is no evidence” – because there isn’t. If you did the research to disprove them all, why not add the references…. So while everything you offer in taking down the ‘myth’ is bang on, with the exception of ‘[pale ales] weren’t drunk by the troops, either those of the East India Company’s forces or the later British Army forces in India’ the ‘myth’ itself is also true, albeit incomplete. References for all would be great. Copying for fair use is encouraged. The discovery that extra hops were needed was made when sending beer to hot climes generally. WTF are you on about?

And at that time they finally had enough understanding of the process and basic biochemistry involved to know that drier, higher in alcohol it would be, it would last longer and knew the preservative value of hops. India just happened to be the one that gained the moniker (you certainly know more than I on this topic so I will not try to go into any detail on the history of that aspect), and thus the destination used in the version of my myth which I stated would actually be true. Ok then, so you’re only rebutting one very narrow version of how IPAs came about. […], […] primary sources and old brewing ledgers and everything! Did anyone but me miss IPA day? Between fighting there was very little for troops to do, and if left to drink arak, the local gut-rot, they died from bad drink much quicker than battle. So I am sorry but this eas clearly invention for export to hot climates (and long journeys) where again, India at that time was a prominent destination. They mostly crushed porters, by then London’s dominant beer style. British Army forces most certainly did drink pale ales – as well as porter.
