Beer Store Near Me – Beer Store Trivia
What was the first modern IPA?
You may think of IPAS as being a fairly recent invention, especially given their sudden surge in popularity within the past 10 years, but history states otherwise. As you search beer store near me, consider these facts. According to beer historians (yes, they’re real), the first modern American IPA was Anchor Liberty Ale. It was a single hopped, dry hopped, West Coast Style IPA before there even was such a thing as a West Coast IPA. Invented in 1975, Anchor’s liberty Ale is still around and kicking today with cascade hops still featured as the prominent ingredient. The only thing that’s changed about this IPA in the past 40 years is that is now available in cans rather than just bottles. The beer was recently selected as one of America’s most essential IPAs, an honor we’re sure nearly any beer brand or IPA company is yearning to acquire.
When did the beer can first debut?
Just like soda, early beer was served in a glass bottle rather than an aluminum can. To this day, some people still prefer the taste and overall experience of drinking from a glass bottle rather than a can. The major difference being that beer in a can is often slightly cheaper than beer sold in bottles. While bottled beer has existed for many years, cans are far more recent, though not as recent as you may think. According to historians, beer made its debut in a can back in 1933. Long before Krueger was a name associated with horror movies and Halloween, it was the name of a brewery in Newark, NJ. At this point in time, the brewery teamed up with a canning company to package Krueger Special Beer in aluminum cans rather than bottles. This was the first beer to be served in such a manner. The beer had a 3.2% ABV, which is around 7% lower than the standard ABV sold in most beers today. Back then, this was the maximum amount allowed by the law. Nowadays, even fancier upscale beer brands are beginning to package their beer in aluminum cans. Not only does it keep costs down for customers, but it can be easier to dispose of. As you search beer store near me, ask yourself if you’d rather drink beer out of a can or a bottle. Do you taste a difference?

The Booziest State in the US
If you had to guess which state in the US consumed the most beer, which would you choose? Would you guess California due to population? How about Nevada due to Las Vegas? A lot of factors go into what makes one state drink more than other, but the answer to the aforementioned question may just shock you. It seems almost impossible that any state could outdrink Nevada, given the proclivity towards alcohol in Las Vegas and the outlying areas, but nevada ranked seventh. Many of the states you would peg as heavy drinking states didn’t make the list at all. So which US state consumes more alcohol than any other? North Dakota! According to statistics this state drinks more per person than any other. In fact, each resident drank 43.6 gallons of beer in 2013 alone. New Hampshire and Montana came in second and third place, respectively. What’s with the high level of drinking in rural state such as North Dakota and Montana? According to some residents, it has everything to do with the fact that there’s simply not much else to do.
