Aluminum cans are recycled at nearly twice the rate of plastic and glass beverage
containers. 120 million beverage cans every day in the United States, that’s
45 billion a year which is equivalent to twelve 12-packs per person.
The vast majority of those 45 billion cans being recycled get turned into new cans,
so that there's 73% recycled content on average in most cans
One fun beer cocktail is called Root Beer. No not root beer. Take 12 ounces of a

Sour beer is an ancient type of beer in which wild yeast and bacteria are allowed to
grow in freshly brewed beer (wort), which then ferments. After this stage, the wort is
often transferred to wooden barrels where it matures for months or years. During
that time, the microbes produce numerous metabolic products -- including ethanol,
acids and esters -- that provide much of the unique flavor of sour beers.
Beer cocktail - The Stout Sangaree Pour 2 tablespoons of simple syrup into a

We hope you don't have a t-shirt with the saying "Beer is proof that God loves us
and wants us to be happy" that falsely attributes it to Benjamin Franklin. He did say
something similar in a letter to Abbé Morellet, but the subject was wine, not beer.
