Beer in England

Beer In England

English beer has a long history and traditions that are distinct from most other beer brewing countries.

Beer was the first alcoholic drink to be produced in England, and has been brewed continuously since prehistoric times. England is known for its top fermented cask beer (also called real ale) which finishes maturing in the cellar of the pub rather than at the brewery and is served with only natural carbonation.

English beer styles include bitter, mild, brown ale and old ale. Stout was also originally brewed in London.

Lager style beer has increased considerably in popularity since the mid 20th century. Other modern developments include consolidation of large brewers into multinational corporations; growth of beer consumerism; expansion of microbreweries and increased interest in bottle conditioned beers.

    Now I am alone with the dead,
    flying off bridges,
    hurling myself like a beer can into the wastebasket.

    leaving a jet stream
    of solitude....
