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.
