Here`s another cracker from Boddington`s of Manchester , their I.P from 1901 ; this was the brewhouse code for their famous Bitter , and the only time a beer is labelled as such in the brewing books is , during the Great War ( a low abv beer @ 3.1-3 % ) ,
Cheers & Happy Mashing guys ,
Edd

If ever a man was born in the wrong time it is Edd, I love his speak, the brewers of old long breakfast while mashing, maybe black pudding with crusty home made bread and a large mug of Rosey Lee.
How Do Wide Eyed,
Or a 'Brewer's Breakfast' for the tender of head (A big mug of hot wort with an egg cracked in)!!,
Cheers

I`ve recently corresponded with Keith Thomas at Brewlab ; Sunderland over here in the UK , and as a result they`ve had a brew of the Magee Marshall Government Ale from 1917 (P.A Version) on their small test plant, from a recipie I sent .
Last week the postie brought me the result !! a couple of very special bottles , .
the Magee`s Beer , and a bottle of Hammond`s of Bradford Porter , the kids are settling down nicely ; and I`ll be posting a review with photos in a week or two ,

Cheers :cheers:,

How Do Sydney Harbour Bridge,
The Government Ale refers to the imposition by the UK Government of a restriction on the Ammount (by gravity and %of production ) of the beers a brewery could produce (from 1917),

Was that part of the war effort?
Yep, that's right ; at the same time as the implementation of DORA, AKA: Defence of The Realm Act 1917 which introduced more restrictive licencing hours for pubs.
I believe that Australia had something similar, with the Six o' Clock swill !!!,
Cheers
Edd
