The original India Pale Ale was pure gold in a glass; a semi-mythical beer specially invented, in the 19th century, to travel halfway around the world, through storms and tropical sunshine, and arrive in perfect condition for a long, cold drink on an Indian verandah. But although you can still buy beers with a€˜IPAa€™ on the label they are, to be frank, a pale imitation of the original. For the first time in 140 years, a keg of Burton IPA has been brewed with the original recipe for a voyage to India by canal and tall ship, around the Cape of Good Hope; and the man carrying it is the award-winning Pete Brown, Britaina€™s best beer write. Brazilian pirates and Iranian customs officials lie ahead, but will he even make it that far, have fallen in the canal just a few miles out of Burton? And if Pete does make it to the other side of the world with a€˜Barrya€™ the barrel, one question remains: what will the real IPA taste like? Weaving first-class travel writing with assured comedy, Hops and Glory is both a rollicking, raucous history of the Raj and a wonderfully entertaining, groundbreaking experiment to recreate the finest beer ever produced.NUMBER. ONE. BEER. FAN. Outside the port gates, my world exploded. It was as if senses Ia#39;d not used for weeks were ... The cut-and-pasted skyline Ia#39;d seen from the ship turned out not to be the city centre at all, but a mere suburb. ... I moved on to the second stage a€“ pretending to be speaking to someone on my mobile phone, the private bubble thata#39;s the ... to talk about my journey, but that reception had happened while the Caribbean languished in the Gulf with a broken engine.
