Tsar Peter I (The Great) was the most well travelled Tsar in Russia’s history. On his 1698 trip to England, Peter the Great, who loved the taste of stout beer, wished to take some back to Russia but realized it would spoil. His solution? Ask the London brewers to add more hops and alcohol to the stouts, which created a new beer style – the Russian Imperial Stout!
