The Beer Saga
We are all tired from our hectic schedule at work. All of us really hate spending the entire weeks buried in the office chairs just cursing the work we are being forced to do. Especially if it’s a Monday nothing can match our hatred for the day and the desperation to wait for the weekend. We all look forward to Fridays where we can all chill a bit and find some peace from the tiring work schedule. While some of would just spend the weekends resting and sleeping rest of us really like to lighten the mood and get the groove going. Drinks, music and party might be one of the ways to ease up a bit. Considering that the summers that have arrived we need to choose our liquor wisely. What better can be a solution to a hot summer day than a cold and chilled can of beer? The beer has always been one of our favorite drinks. So let’s dig into some crazy beer facts from all over the world.
One of the oldest drink
Beer is said to be one of the oldest drink known to mankind. According to reports, the oldest beer can be dated back to the early Neolithic era. The first of the beers were brewed in the year 9500 BC. So it won’t be wrong to say that our love and passion for beers is not developed overnight but is an outcome of a long dedication to the drink.
Nobody really likes a delay when we are actually having a party. Each and every one of us only wants that the glass must be refilled as soon as it’s empty. Everybody fears to have an empty glass as it just slows down the mood and the rhythm of the party. But there is actually a phobia of having an empty beer glass. So next time someone says he has Cenosillicaphobia you know what needs to be done.
The strongest one:
The strongest beer in the world is the Brewmaster’s Snake Venom. While regular beer usually has about 5% ABV, this Scottish killer has a stomach burning 67.5% ABV.
The real motivator
Every corporate employee is really searching for motivation to continue working. Amsterdam has actually has found a very creative method of keeping some of their employees motivated. Amsterdam pays alcoholics in terms of beer. For cleaning the city streets local alcoholics get 10 Euros half a packet of rolling tobaccos and 5 beers as a payment funded by government organizations.
The ultimate reward.
The wife carrying competition is held in Finland every year and guess what the price is? The winner of this competition gets his wife’s weight in beer. Not only this but when Neil Bohr won the Nobel Prize in 1922, the Carlsberg brewery gave him a perpetual supply of beer piped into his house. Well, that’s a great motivation to keep researching.
And the Hangover
We all love parties and alcohol but we can’t deny the fact that we all hate hangovers. Those mornings were you start regretting every drink you took can really suck out your passion for partying again. The good part is these hangovers only last for a few hours and things get back to normal. However not all the people so lucky. The longest hangover lasted for over a week when a Scotsman consumed over 60 pints of beer.
At any given time, 0.7% of the world is drunk. So 50 million people are drunk right now. So if you are having second thoughts in your mind go ahead it’s never late to join the 50 million club.
