International Beer Day


On International Beer Day, impress your friends with your knowledge of beer. Here are a few facts to get you started:

  • Ancient Egyptians consumed around 4 litres of beer each, per day whilst building the pyramids.

  • Ancient Babylonians took the seriousness of brewing to a whole new level: if a batch was bad, the brewer was drowned in it. (Yikes!)

  • Vikings believed that a giant goat resided in Valhalla whose udders were filled with an unlimited supply of beer.

  • The Czech Republic is the beer drinking capital of the world. Each Czech drinks an average of 40 gallons a year.

Thank you to the guys at internationalbeerday.com for the facts and the posters!

If you're celebrating International Beer Day with us at The Red Lion, please take photos of you and your mates, you and your pints - or just your pint (if you're camera-shy), and share with us on our Facebook Page or on Twitter @RedLionEarlston (and add #intlbeerday).

Cheers!
