The posts, or essays as I like to call them, itemized below represent a body of writing from this past spring with a single exception from July 2018, as it fits the scheme intended.
I deal with English-style brewing (ale, porter) in Poland with a single but notable instance in Germany, starting in the 1800s. I also canvass prewar beer styles in general in Poland, its former Borderlands, and parts further east between ca.1900 and 1939.
Other aspects addressed of prewar Polish brewing include supplies used, for example the cask liner mammut and its source, and per capita consumption patterns in the light of world data.
“Lviv Porter, 1924-1939”, documents, using Polish sources, the continuing appeal of porter in the interwar period, and a likely shift to bottom-fermentation just ahead of World War II by a notable producer.
The essay “A Lviv Idyll, 1936” is a literary sally, finally.
This material both stands on its own and serves to complement my writing in the same period, (spring 2021) which documents the participation of Jews in Central and East European brewing, as indexed and introduced in this post.
