Ale on TV

It's finally happened. A television series has looked at the history of English beer and brewing without - as far as I can see - rehashing the usual myths, misunderstandings and mistakes.

Giles Coren in Our Food this week was in the hop gardens of Kent and also went round the Shepherd Neame Brewery in Faversham. I thought it was pretty accurate and informative but feel free to point out any errors I've missed.

  1. Very good - but they'd have strained that pre-hop ale through a hair sieve, no way would it have been that cloudy.

    And why aren't Kentish brewers making cherry beer? You could get it in London in 1710 or so ...
