from The Economist Christmas 2016 Double issue out recently.
This is an interesting article on India Pale Ales (IPA for short) and how they come into their own during Britain’s Industrial revolution and imperial expansion, before being usurped by lager.

There is reference made to this period for IPA (and also porter) in the recently released book ‘Empire of Booze’ by Henry Jeffreys. In fact, it was so interesting that I gave it my book of the month title as reported here.
