Truman week

It's Truman week here at Barclay Perkins. Or is it Imperial week? No, that sounds a bit fascist. Truman week it is. I've so many exciting things planned. I can hardly wait.

"What have you got in store for us, Ronald?" So much, so much. I'll kick off with an overview of Truman's Ales 1831 - 1865. Fascinating, it is. You should see the gravities of those suckers. Seeing just how Pale Ale (they brewed it once or twice a year) relates to the X and K Ales is very revealing. Pale Ale a strong beer, eh?

There will be a couple of special recipe posts called "Let's brew Imperial!" One - a Stout - really was called Imperial. The other, well I call it Imperial Mild. For Truman's it was just XXXX. I think my name's snappier.

You're such a tease. Looking forward to it!
