More Beer Facts:

Keep rims at least 1″ above soil level.

Commie Red Ale?


  • The Wat Pa Maha Chedi Kaew temple in Thailand was constructed with 1 million bottles of Heineken and a local beer.
  • The first modern American IPA was Anchor Liberty Ale: a single-hopped, dry-hopped West Coast IPA before there was such a thing as West Coast IPAs (remember, this was first released in 1975), Anchor’s Liberty Ale still features Cascade hops. Perhaps the only way the beer’s changed in the last 40+ years is that it’s currently available in cans. And obviously the high watermark in the existence of Liberty Ale is that it was selected as one of America’s 25 essential IPAs.
  • There’s a beer brewed from bananas in Africa
