"The name East India Porter pre-dates India Pale Ale. IPA wasn't used until the 1820's, whereas India Porter dates back to 1804. It's a beer with a pretty long history - and probably fits in very well with modern tastes."

-- Ron Pattinson on Beer Sessions Radio

"If a beer was crappy in 1950 - it should be crappy today!"
