24 Things You Didn’t Know About Beer

Think you know everything about beer? Think again! We’ve compiled a list of 24 things that would surprise even the most knowledgable beer snob. Now, when you meet your first OKCupid date at the bar for a drink and have nothing to talk about, you can show them that your beer knowledge goes beyond how to use it for inebriation!

24 Things You Didn't Know About Beer

We hope you enjoyed reading these useless facts about beer. As drinking enthusiasts, we’re clearly very concerned with health, and were therefore very happy to learn that beer prevents kidney stones (fact #17) and that beer strengthens your bones (fact #18.) The WearYourBeer team also stresses the importance of education and want to point out that beer makes your smarter (fact #16). We’d like to clarify, however, that even though beer will make you smarter, reading this blog post will not.

If, however, you’d like to look cool and let your peers know who the price of parties is, WearYourBeer might be able to help. Check out our selection of Jack Daniel’s T Shirts featuring our all time best seller, the classic Jack Daniel’s logo tee.

    Not bad!

  2. Nik says:

    Actually, this is really quite bad. The very first “fact” is a common misquotation; Franklin was referring to wine, not beer. More egregious, though, is the eighth “fact,” which is an old myth which has been thoroughly discredited by Martyn Cornell, Ron Pattinson, and others. IPA was not invented to survive the journey to India; it had been brewed in England well before it was ever exported, and the standard pale ales and porters which were being sent to the tropics survived the voyage just fine. And there’s plenty else to take issue with here. Really pretty embarrassing for a site pandering to beer geeks.

    • Cory says:

      I gotta agree with Nik on this one, much of this is very incorrect.

    • “Thanks for pointing these errors out. Even though the IPA recipe was similar before and after the beer started making its way to India, this website (provide website that says this,) does say that extra hops were added after the beer began traveling from England to India. We didn’t find anywhere that specifically stated that the reason for the extra hops was that the beer was not properly preserved upon arriving in india, but assumed that this was part of the reason since it is widely known that one of the main purposes of hops is to help preserve the beer. Would love to see the source you have that explains why this is incorrect, can you post this link?”

    • Seamus O'Conner says:

      @Nik: You clearly need to drink more beer. This is a fun little thing that means nothing. Don’t be a “know-it-all.”

      Beer in general withstood long voyages.

  3. Chris Mannes says:

    Pete Brown has written some good stuff, including a whole book, about the history of beer.

    Can you please tell me how did you prepare this info-graphic? application/tools used?

    Definitely some big whiffs here.

    #12 is putting the cart before the horse. “The agriculture {sic} revolution was started because people needed a way to make more beer.” (‘Agriculture’ is a noun; ‘agricultural’ is an adjective.) False, actually. Beer provided a way for grain to be stored for much longer periods than traditional methods, including converting it to flour or breads. People weren’t looking for a way to brew more beer. They already had the means to produce grain in large quantities, they simply couldn’t store that grain very long until beer was invented. When they had this means of making the ‘shelf-life’ of grains so much longer, it became worthwhile to produce that much more.

    And #15 completely – COMPLETELY – misses the point. Beer for health, yes. Beer for minerals, energy and nutrients? Uh, no. The process of brewing beer involves water being boiled (in order to create the wort). This process of boiling killed all the nasty bacteria, germs, cholera, etc. People drank beer because drinking water was a death sentence. It wasn’t discovered until much later exactly WHY people who drank beer lived longer. Apparently, you still haven’t discovered this.

    I didn’t bother reading past #15, to be honest.

  7. Unquestionably believe that which you said. Your favorite justification appeared to be on the internet
    the easiest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I certainly get annoyed while people consider worries that they just do not know about.

    You managed to hit the nail upon the top and also defined out
    the whole thing without having side-effects
    , people could take a signal. Will probably be back to get more.

    Thanks
