    Re: Bourbon or Rye on the High Seas

    Indeed, the extra hops were to assist preservation during the trip over. There is some loose lore about the beer improving on the voyage but I doubt it did. There are numerous accounts of problems with English beer once it got to Calcutta, say, sourness or some other bad taste. By the end of the 1800's, little ale was being exported to India and lager started to take over there, as in most warm countries.
