Stuff for beer drinkers!
Stuff for beer drinkers!

‘Tis the season for drinking beer. And while summer time often means slamming your hand into an icy cooler and popping the top on a cold can or bottle, for peak pleasure consider drinking only bottled beer that’s been poured into a glass. The beer experts say much of the taste comes from the aroma and if you drink from the bottle, you won’t be able to take in the aroma as well.

But don’t chill the glasses in the freezer. When the ice crystals melt they add water to the beer and can dilute the flavor.

Speaking of beer,¬†what holiday or national event do you think is the biggest for beer sales? If you said the Super Bowl, you’re… wrong. By a long-shot.

  • Fourth of July – 68 million cases of beer
  • Labor Day – 64.5 million
  • Memorial Day – 64.4 million
  • Father’s Day – 63.4 million
  • Christmas/New Years – 59 million
  • Thanksgiving – 56 million
  • Easter – 53 million
  • Super Bowl – 51.7 million

And here’s some good medical news for beer drinkers. Your risk of painful kidney stones falls 41% after drinking a beer-a-day.

Other drinks that prevent kidney stones:

  • Regular Coffee (26%)
  • Decaf coffee (16%)
  • Tea (11%)
  • Red Wine (11%)
  • White wine (33%)
  • Orange juice (12%)

… Where do you go wrong? Soda. Those who drink one or more sugary drinks a day have a 23% higher risk than those who drank them once a week.
