The latest Malthouse blog looks at beer legends, Louis Pasteur, his love of yeast and hatred of Prussians, Croucher Cherry Bock and some big up-coming events. It is called “The Beer of Revenge“:

Revenge!” which must have proved difficult for peer reviewers, but had little real impact. But the second form changed beer as we know it.”
