Beer Facts…That we all should know

Posted: November 14, 2011 in Amazing, Fashion & Life Style, Triva

Beer…..The most interested drink of the world….lets know some facts about it…

Beer’s been around since at least 6000 BC, which means that a lot of interesting things have happened concerning the golden beverage over the years…

Beer Fact 1:A diary record shows that the pilgrims on the Mayflower (who founded the colony that would later become the USA) actually intended to go much further south but when their beer supplies ran out, they decided they had gone far enough. Hmmmmm now we know what the motivating factor for some one to “Move Forward“…Hope my boss reads this and keeps me motivated…

Beer Fact 2: Beer is the 2nd most consumed beverage in the world (not counting water, of course). Guinness Beer alone sells over 7 million pints a day and it seems the alcoholic beverage comes second only to tea………Guys now its time show the loyalty and it is in our hands to make BEER No1.

Beer Fact 3: The beer bottle was not invented till 1850. In fact, till then beer drinkers would fill up massive buckets at local beer houses and lug them all the way home.…..Imagine you carrying couple of buckets…or your friends getting some beer buckets….Cool…Bottle shouldn’t have been introduced.

Beer Fact 4: The first civilization to brew beer was the ancient Babylonians. They took the job a tad too seriously though because if someone brewed a bad batch, their punishment was to be drowned in it.…..Hmmmm…”Spirit Full Death”

Beer Fact 5: Cenosillicaphobia is the fear of an empty glass……Hmmm this is best Phobia….

Beer Fact 6: Czechs are the world’s biggest beer drinkers, consuming an average of 160 liters a year. The reason is, as most things are, a monetary one. A bottle of beer costs the equivalent of Rs. 10 while even a Coke of the same size costs up to the equivalent of Rs. 30 in the nation. Beer is cheaper than bottled water…..Now that’s some party-friendly pricing policy-making!!!!! What say…..Be A Czech

Beer Fact 7:Ancient Vikings believed that a giant goat was awaiting them in Valhalla (Viking heaven) and this goat’s udders (milk source) would provide a limitless supply of beer……Hmmmm that’s the heaven we want! what say folks

Beer Fact 8: American beer guzzler Steven Petrosino still holds the record for the fastest beer drinking ever even though he set the record as long ago as in 1977. This is hardly surprising considering he drank an entire liter within 1.3 seconds…….Guys buckle up….nahhh Bottle up… unbroken record for 32 years..shame to this Generation Guzzlers…..waitinggggg for the new record

Fact 9: Brewed from actual Arctic ice, Antarctic Nail Ale tops all beer lists as the most expensive beer in the world. And at Rs. 32,000 a bottle, we’re far from surprised either. Only 30 bottles (sold only at auctions) have been produced so far and every single rupee goes to a charity that opposes whaling in the Antarctic. So far, only one bottle has actually been purchased……Hmmmm now we know why whales are killed

Beer Fact 10: In the 1940s PBR (a popular beer brand) conducted a massive study to determine what weight of beer would make it perfectly conducive for a housewife to carry home with her groceries. And thus, the 6-pack was born!…..

And before ending this….just want to quote Frank Zappa…famous American Music composer…You can’t be a real country unless you have a beer and an airline; it helps if you have some kind of football team, or some nuclear weapons, but at the very least you need a beer.

Guys…..The idea is not to make you drink…..Plz plz be carefull while drinking…and have the legal age for drinking…..and Plz plz dont drive after you drinkkkkkkkk….Enjoy with Care…..

Cheers
