International Beer Day 5th August

One shouldn’t drink wine every day.

He was a wise man who invented beer.

– Plato

  • Ancient Egyptians built the pyramids while consuming a healthy amount of beer. About 4 liters a day, to be exact. I always knew it helped with creativity.
  • Ancient Babylonians took the seriousness of brewing to a whole new level. If a bad batch was made the brewer was drowned in it. At least it didn’t go to waste.
  • Vikings believed that a giant goat resided in Valhalla whose udders were filled with an unlimited supply of beer. Sounds like heaven to me.
  • The Czech Republic is the beer drinking capital of the world. Each Czech drinks an average of 40 gallons a  year. My flight to Prague is booked.
  • Beer does a body good! It contains a high level of silicon which increases the calcium deposits and minerals for healthy bone tissue. Feel free to keep pouring that beer over your Fruit Loops.
