This is the first episode in a series that we’re going to be running over the course of the next few months, and each instalment is going to take a closer look at a certain style of beer and find out what makes it unique. We’re also going to look into the history of each style as well, because many beers have a quirky or unique history that's very interesting; to beer nerds like us at least. After all, beer is around 9000 years old! There has gotta be some good stories hidden in there somewhere! Without further ado lets get into it.
IBUs have been up and coming in the beer world for some time now, especially around craft beer. They are now typically found on menus alongside ABVs and many breweries -including ourselves- are putting them on their cans and bottles. But what do they mean?
Footnote: We’re not here to express an opinion on the subject of same-sex marriage or on whether or not people should be boycotting Coopers. We’re here to give our two cents on how this whole and rather shameful farce has come about and, now that everything has died down, to take all of what we know and lay it out for people to read.
