… because the proofs are back for the article I’ve written with Martin Iversen about Carlsberg’s expansion (mostly into the UK).  It is part of a special Scandinavian issue of  Brewery History and is probably one of the few times that lager has graced the pages of this fine journal.

I joined the Brewery History Society last year and the journal always has good well researched articles in it. So have a look if you fancy learning a bit more about the history behind Fuggles hops.

You can also read more about that particular story on Martyn Cornell’s blog Zythophile.

Bang, bang, another beery myth hits the floorboards, or at least staggers back badly wounded, after excellent work by Kim Cook in an article called “Who produced Fuggle’s Hops” just published in the latest (Spring 2009, issue 130) edition of Brewery History magazine.

Update: You can also see the paper on Academia.edu on https://www.academia.edu/5048982/Carlsberg_from_exporter_to_an_integrated_multinational_enterprise_with_Martin_J_Iversen_
