Before refrigeration, it was normal for people to drink their beer warm. Between 1500 and 1800, you could walk into any bar and order a mulled beer. Some people were even convinced that mulled beer was the key to a healthy lifestyle. Here are some recipes to try for yourself:
This Polish Grzaniec from Pick n Pay is perfect for any winter night and only takes a few minutes to make. This recipe combines spicy, earthy flavours from black peppercorns and a sweet, citrus flavour from the orange slice. Use any light lager to make this mulled beer.
Grab your favourite English porter and gin to make this classic beer cocktail. The Dog’s Nose appears in The Pickwick Papers by Charles Dickens, alongside this warning, “Mr. Walker, a convert to the Brick Lane branch of the United Grand Junction Ebenezer Temperance Association, thought that tasting Dog’s Nose twice a week for 20 years had lost him the use of his right hand.”
This popular 1700s drink recipe from Twelve Bottles will take just over 90 minutes to make. If you have free time on a cold, winter afternoon then this drink is for you! The flavours of the ale, apple, and nutmeg balance perfectly in this traditional English Lamb’s Wool.
