Britain’s greatest export?
Beer Day Britain suggest beer could be Britain’s greatest export, due to its exportation around the world in the 18th century and the proliferation of beer styles invented in Britain that are now brewed worldwide.
Types of beer enjoyed across the globe include Pale Ale, India Pale Ale, Mild, Brown Ale, Stout, Porter, Imperial Russian Stout, and Barley Wine.
