Among the cards is the fact that the introduction of Indian Pale Ale in the late 18th century was in response to the long ocean journey to India. To stabilize the beer and avoid spoilage more hops were added and the alcohol content was increased. The antiseptic properties of alcohol assured Indian expatriates their ale.
Also, in 1722, Ralph Harwood of the Bell Brewhouse, produced ale that was named Porter in honor of its main customers - all the porters who carried goods throughout London. The unique taste was derived from blending stale or sour ale, brown ale and weak ale.
