ALL ABOUT BEER!
Crazy Facts About the History of Beer-
January 24th, 1935 – The first canned beer ever made by Krueger Brewing Company makes its debut in Virginia.
*The Mayflower had initially intended to sail to Virginia. When it arrived on the rocky shores of Plymouth, MA, the captain of the ship noted that they were running low on beer. In order to ensure that his crew had enough to make the trip back to England, he forced the Pilgrims ashore and made them drink water.
*In ancient times, beer was drunk
through straws to prevent grain hulls from being consumed with the beverage.
*Unlike today, beer was originally brewed primarily by women
. While men were hunting, women would gather the ingredients and ferment the beverages.
*From the start of prohibition, homebrewing was illegal
on the federal level. In 1978, Jimmy Carter signed a law that allowed households to brew up 200 gallons of beer, tax-free. However, additional state and local restrictions still apply.
