“For a quart of ale is a dish for a king.” - William Shakespeare, “The Winter’s Tale” (Act IV, Scene II)
Happy American Beer Day! While we all might love a Guinness or a Corona, today is all about the over 2,500 breweries in the United States that produce more than six billion gallons of beer every year. Whether you’re a fan of the big brands or a craft beer aficionado, in honor of American Beer Day a true beer enthusiast will need to drink the country’s most popular brew, the pale lager. Per capita, the average American consumes roughly 20 gallons of beer annually, and this unofficial holiday is the perfect occasion to fulfill your patriotic duty. Head down to your local bar, pub, brewery — or just open up the fridge and chug a cold one in honor of American Beer Day. Cheers!
