What’s with the name?

Invented by Samuel Hunter Christie in 1833 and improved and popularized by Sir Charles Wheatstone in 1843, a Wheatstone bridge is an electrical circuit used to measure an unknown electrical resistance by balancing two legs of a bridge circuit, one leg of which includes the unknown component. But don't over think this one, instead picture Sir Charles Wheatstone basking in the sun, drinking a beer and enjoying the fame and popularity that undoubtedly comes with popularizing someone else's invention.

Trivia

While performing experiments in electricity as a teenager, Wheatsone ran short of the money he needed to buy copper-plates for building a battery. While looking at the few copper pennies he had left, a thought occurred, 'We must use the pennies themselves,' he said, and the battery was soon complete.

Brewed year round.
