Cheers to Beer

Beer is one of the world's oldest and most widely consumed alcoholic drinks. Some of humanity's earliest writings mention the production and distribution of beer. Beer was produced in Syria around 2500 BC, while people made a fermented drink using rice and fruit in China around 7000 B.C.

Germanic and Celtic tribes spread beer throughout Europe dating back to 3000 B.C. These European beers included fruits, honey, spices, and other substances. They did not contain hops, which were first mentioned in Europe in the early 800s A.D. In the early 1500s, William IV, Duke of Bavaria, adopted the Reinheitsgebot, a series of rules which decreed that beer could only contain water, hops, and barley malt. The rules have evolved over the years to include other malted grains, but the basic idea remans the same.

Beer's history changed again during the Industrial Revolution. Beer production became industrialized and domestic manufacture declined significantly during the 19th century. Hydrometers and thermometers further changed brewing, giving brewers better control over the process and producing better results.

In 1912, the Joseph Schlitz Brewing Company of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, began using brown bottles. The brewing industry accepted the innovation, which is still in use today. The brown bottles prevent harmful rays from degrading the quality of the beer.

Today beer is more popular than it's ever been. You can find craft breweries in nearly any city. These creative establishments offer innovative blends and beverages. National Beer Lovers Day is the perfect day to honor the past and celebrate the evolution of this great libation.
