15: Malt Tonics - part 1

Season 1, Ep. 15

Delve into beer history with us at your peril! It’s part one of malt tonics and medicinal beers!

Christina talks to Lisa and Bean about malt tonics and the old-timey (or is it new-timey?) ways they were marketed to women, doctors, women doctors, the healthy, the sick, and everyone from tots to wrinklies. What went into a malt tonic, besides arsenic and old lace? Christina recounts a recipe she recreated from an old patent. Bean tries not to squirm too much at the retelling.
