The Big 4 Brewery Tour

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

Beer is one of the world’s oldest prepared beverages, possibly dating back to the early Neolithic or 9500 BC.

In 1814, almost 400,000 gallons of beer flooded several streets in London after a huge vat ruptured in the parish of St. Giles.

Beer commercials in the US aren’t really allowed to show people actually drinking the beer. It’s a US law that people cannot actually be shown consuming an alcoholic beverage on television.
