“He was a wise man who invented beer.” – Plato
Every year on April 7th, America celebrates one of the greatest alcoholic beverages known to man – beer. Beer is the most widely consumed alcoholic beverage in the world and the third most popular drink overall, following tea and water. Here in the United States, it’s no secret we love our beer. In fact, our country consumes 6.25 billion gallons of beer each year. That’s enough to fill more than 9,500 Olympic-sized swimming pools.
