Almost 1000 I am jealous. I feel i may hit 1000 by the end of 2013. I was at 400 at the beginning of this year. There is a great new shop by my house. And i wish i could give some free advertising for him. But he only specializes in Craft beers. He has a whole wall of Abby's and items of that nature. He usually gives samples of various favorites of his. And newer beers to his store.
This is not meant to be religious. This is solely for Historical beer facts enjoy!
Beer is a beverage rather low in alcohol content, brewed by slow fermentation from wheat or other grain. The Hebrew word so′veʼ, rendered “wheat beer,” may also be translated “liquor.”—Isa 1:22, ftn; Ho 4:18, ftn; Na 1:10, ftn.
Cuneiform tablets reveal that the art of brewing beer from grain was practiced in ancient Mesopotamia as early as the third millennium B.C.E. When Abraham first arrived in Egypt he probably found that beer was already a common drink there. At a later date, it is said, Ramses III prized beer so highly that he offered up some 114,000 L (30,000 gal) a year to his gods. Many Philistine beer mugs with their strainer spouts have been found. Those various nations, it seems, had a great variety of beers to suit every taste—sweet beer, dark beer, perfumed beer, sparkling beer, spiced beer—served either hot or cold, watered down or thick and syrupy.
I don't know if i'm ready for hot beer ... but hey it's worth a shot!
