This week we catch up once again with influential beer historian Martyn Cornell from the blog Zythophile.
We last caught up with Martyn back in 2011 when he had set a cat amongst the pigeons correcting some errors in the Oxford Companion to Beer. Martyn has a new book out, Strange Tales of Ale, which gives the true account of a wide variety of beer stories, such as the Great Porter Explosion at the Meux Brewery and whether the ploughman’s lunch was really just the creation of cheese marketers.
Martyn is a knowledgeable and engaging guest, and his books are highly recommended. You can buy them – and help him out with higher commissions – by buying them through is Amazon shop here.
Don’t forget to send us your feedback, or leave a voice mail by calling (07) 3040 1508, that we’ll play on our next show.
