In 1872, Hiram Codd patented a glass soft drink bottle that was filled with carbonated liquid. That liquid pushed a glass marble into the neck of the bottle, up against a rubber ring which then sealed the bottle. The “Codd” design is used to this day, in the Khandelwal glass works in India, and for bottling Ramune drinks in Japan*.
 
Wallop is an old English slang term for beer. It is said that Codd’s Wallop was used by beer drinkers as a derogatory name for weak or tasteless beer, or for soft drinks in general. This in time coined the word Codswallop**.
 
We set out, in 2005, to make a winter beer that was neither weak nor tasteless and named it Godswallop. Brewed with a blend of pale ale, aromatic and crystal malts, and six Kent hops, this is a rich, malty deep red ale for enjoying by a roaring fire***.
 
* this is completely true
** despite what you read in Brewer’s Dictionary of Phrase and Fable this is almost certainly codswallop
*** we think this is true. Let us know what you think
