With Binghamton On Tap occurring in a few months, I thought it would be fun to share some interesting beer trivia from Alcohol Problems and Solutions!

  • The Puritans brought more beer than they did water over on the Mayflower.
  • And the Pilgrims landed in Plymouth, Massachusetts because they were running low on beer.
  • One of the first buildings on Harvard University campus was a brewery! It was built so that students would have beer to drink in the dining hall.
  • Beer was first available in bottles in 1850, and first available in cans in 1935.
  • The oldest known recipe in the world is one for beer.
  • The word "beer" comes from the Latin word for "to drink" which is "bibere".
  • During the Middle Ages, monks both brewed beer and drank up to five quarts of it everyday!
