The beer was accordingly treated as advised, advertised as a peculiar tonic ale, and sold in enormous jquantities. The beer is now one-of the moat popular ; it is drunk by invalids, praised by the faculty, and believed in by the (public, although before it was chemically treated it was not worth twopence a, hogshead, and the brewer merely called in a chemist as an alternative to a fiat in bankruptcy.”
