Just because you drank a six-pack last weekend doesn’t mean you know everything there is to know about beer.  Here are five random facts about beer you probably don’t know.

#1.)  There’s a term for the study of beer and beer making.  It’s called zythology.

#2.)  The first drunk driver was a guy riding a chariot in ancient Egypt around 2,000 B.C.  He ran over a young woman, and was crucified on the door of the tavern where he was drinking.

#3.)  The hops in beer come from the same family of flowers as marijuana!

#4.)  When the British tried to ship beer to India by sailing all the way around Africa it would go bad.  So they added extra hops, which made the beer more powerful and bitter.  Those beers were known as India Pale Ales or IPAs.

#5.)  Cenosillicaphobia is the fear of an empty beer glass.
