New Wave Brewery Tour

There are also wines made from fermenting other fruits or cereals, whose names often specify their base, with some having specific names.

Cenosillicaphobia is the fear of an empty beer glass. Terrifying phobia indeed.

The oldest drinkable beer in the world was found in 2010, in an early 19th-century shipwreck discovered near Finland. The beer was preserved in bottles by the cold abyss and it tasted very old (unsurprisingly), with some burnt notes and an acidic aftertaste.

The builders of the Great Pyramid of Giza were paid with a daily ration of beer.
