    Default Shut up about Barclay Perkins - Dutch Ale

    Visit the Shut up about Barclay Perkins site

    Do Continental Ales exist? A question I often ask myself in idle moments. It beats staring out of the window blankly. But only just.

    Fairness is important. Especially when you find stuff that doesn't fit your theories. (I had considered destroying the evidence but what with the internet and Google Books, that's a hopeless task.)

    In that spirit, here's proof that some Continental beers were considered Ale:

    Het Nieuws van den Dag, 5th April 1884


    The price hierarchy there says a lot. Top of the tree are Bass Pale Ale and Extra Stout at 30 cents a bottle. Next Vollenhoven's Extra Stout at 25 cents.

    Beierische Bieren. That's a general name for bottom-fermenting beer. Heineken, Amstel and Pilsener. Not sure what any of those exactly is. But at 17 and 18 cents, they're a good bit cheaper than the posh top-fermenters.

    The last lot are a funny bunch. Gerstenbier and Princessen Bier are Dutch types. Not sure if they are top- or bottom-fermenters. For the more price-conscious drinker. It would help if I knew the relationship between a Kruik, a Flesch and a halve Liter.

    I'm unable to post on your blog ( a problem with my computer rather than your web page), so I'll add my comment here instead.

    To answer your query: It would help if I knew the relationship between a Kruik, a Flesch and a halve Liter.

    A Kruik is a jug, a Flesch is a bottle and a Halve Liter is a half litre, presumably in a glass.
