I didn’t think so. I’m used to talking to myself. The family isn’t exactly fascinated by beer history.

“Stop being annoying, Dad.” Is Alexei’s normal response to a remark about hop usage in Scotland in the 1860’s. No interest in anything, these young people. Amazingly, not even the brands of Stout available in the early 1950’s. Un-fucking-believable.

Branded Stout. Not something I’d given a load of thought to. But now I think about it, old labels for Stouts quite often have names. Which explains the very long list. And is more evidence that Guinness were far from monopolising the Stout market. Confirming Stout was an important product for breweries at the time. Why else go to the trouble of naming them.

Doubtless it’s also connected with Stout becoming an exclusively bottled beer for most breweries. Draught Stout was still about in London in the 1950’s, but not really anywhere else. At a certain point, most drinkers must have expected Stout always to be in bottled form.

But there remained a sizeable market for Stout. In Mass Observation’s Bolton of the late 1930’s, it’s mostly women drinking Stout. My guess is that was still the case in the early 1950’s. Sweet Stout is certainly what my Mum drank in the 1960’s. In fact her beer of choice is in the list: Warwick & Richardson’s Milk Maid Stout. She was most upset when it was discontinued after the brewery was absorbed into the Courage group.

I’m keeping in short. I’ll just remark that many of the beers just classes as Stout were Sweet Stouts. Milk Maid, for example. That’s why my Mum liked it: sweet and not too alcoholic. Many examples of this type of Stout were under 3% ABV.

Light Ale next, I think. Pretty sure there were some of those.
