In the 18th century beers & ales were more than just a beverage but an important part of daily cuisine. Wine was reserved for only after dinner, so the colonist enjoyed ales with their meals. Meats from grass feed livestock was tougher than what we have today, making marinating in ales essential for both tenderizing & preserving meats.
