German IPA update
Barm had me doubting as to whether the IPA was really a German-brewed beer. He pointed out, reasonably enough, that it could have been a British beer that had been imported. He's now found evidence that there was IPA brewed in Bremen.
While it was never quite on the same scale, or of the same duration, as Porter brewing, I did know that Pale Ale was made on the Continent. Even Heineken once brewed a Pale Ale.
Funny, isn't it, how European Porter brewing is reasonably well known, but the export of Porter to India isn't. While with Pale Ale it's the exact opposite.
Erste Norddeutsche Actien Ale und Porter Brauerei, Hemlingen, Bremen. That's who the brewery was.
