"Here and There"

Anchor Liberty, the first modern American IPA, was originally brewed in 1975 to
commemorate the two hundredth anniversary of Pal Revere's historic ride.
And for those new to beer history," Anchor Steam" is a beer by Anchor,
not the brewery's name.  

Need to remove a label from a beer bottle?  A 15-20 minute soak in hot water will
get it to gently slip off.  For difficult cases add some baking soda to the water.

Great way to cook corn:  pour 3 cups of beer in a pot and 1/4 cup of water and bring
to a boil.  Add 2 tablespoons of sugar.  Put in corn (up to 8).  Cover put.  Boil for
one minute.  Flip corn, bring back to a boil, then turn off.  You can thank us later.

Hangover cure- try honey.  Take three to six teaspoons every twenty to thirty
minutes until you feel better.  The potassium in the honey will help reduce cravings
for the "hair of the dog that bit you" and the sugar will replenish what you lost.

The first American tax on beer was levied in 1862 by the Union Congress.  By the
early 1900s taxes on beer and alcohol brought in 40% of the nation's revenue.

When Prohibition ended with the 21st Amendment in 1933 it too only forty-
eight hours for American brewers to deliver $10 million (about $145 million
in today's dollars) in tax revenue to the government.  

"Ere's to English women an' a quart of English beer."
Rudyard Kipling

Enjoy that Hefeweizen with warm bread, fontina cheese, or sliced pears. Good!

When Dogfish Head Brewery & Eats first opened in Milton, DE they had to brew
three times a day, five days a week to meet demand in the restaurant.  They now
brew and bottle in a 100,000 square foot facility. And they make great beeer!

In Singapore home brewers cannot exceed making 30 liters per month
and it must be only for personal use.

"They speak of my drinking but never think of my thirst."
Scott McKiltland

If all the beer consumed in the USA in one year was sold at $4 a pint it would exceed
the Gross Domestic Product of the country of Columbia (and many others.)

When asked "do you drink?"  Stephen King replied,
"Of course, I just said I was a writer."

When the first universities were founded in Europe it was common for them to
have their own brewery.  The was also true Colonial days here. Harvard, for
example, had its own brewhouse when founded in the seventeenth century.

"It is not the drinker, but the man who has just stopped drinking,
who thinks the world is going to the dogs"
H.L. Mencken

Beer has been brewed in Orval Abbey in Belgium since the 13th Century.  The
monastery was destroyed in 1793 and reconstructed in 1926 but it wasn't until 1932
that the new brewery started its operations.  Despite this long brewing history, their
beer has only  been considered an offical Trappist product since 1980.

A Belgian IPA is a convergence of a Belgian Trippel and an American IPA.  
Expect tastes of honey, herbs,  citrus, pepper, and hops.

If you collect beer coasters (mats) you are a tegestologist.  If you prefer beer bottles
than you're a labeorphilist.  If you don't save either you're normal. (Just kidding)

Ever drink a Lambic Sangria?  It's really tasty.  Combine one 750 ml bottle of lambic,
two 12 ounce bottles of a witbier (please don't ask us wit beer is that?), 6 ounces of
Lillet Blanc, ice, and some fresh fruit such as oranges, apples and raspberries.

Hops are rated based on how much alpha and beta acids they contain.  
The alpha acids are used for bittering and the beta for aroma.  

St. Arnold founded the Abbey  of St. Peter in Oudenburg, Belgium.  There he
began to brew and encourage local peasants to drink beer rather than
the oft polluted water local water.  The beer was know as the "gift of health"
since the water in the brewery was boiled freeing it of pathogens.
