Nothing beats a nice, cold beer after a long, hard day at work or uni.

Sounds like something you would say? Then this article is for you. A lot of us enjoy the occasional cold beer every once in a while (or every day) but not many of us know much about beer except for the fact that brewing beer involves fermentation and the sugar in beer mainly comes from malted barley. However, here are some fun facts you should know that could change the way you look at beer, and make you love it even more, if that’s even possible.

So grab yourself a cold one, sit back, relax and get ready to be mind-blown by these facts:


1. Beer has lesser calories than wine

If you’re a health or gym junkie but you love your beer, this should come as good news for you. According to an article by Fox News and a research done by the British Beer Alliance, it is found that beer actually contains less calories compared to wine, about TWO times lesser in fact!

A glass of wine (177 ml) will give you approximately 120 calories, that’s about 0.7 calories per milliliter of wine. Whereas a pint of beer (414 ml) contains about 150 calories, and that’s only about 0.35 calories per milliliter of beer.

3. Women brewers in the medieval ages were often accused of being witches and faced execution

Brewing of beer started at least 10,000 years ago. During ancient times however, beer was exclusively brewed by women, and was also a well-respected occupation in ancient Mesopotamia.

However, during the medieval  era, women brewers were often associated with witches. This is because women brewers utilised items such as bubbling cauldrons, brooms, cats and pointed hats – all of which are often associated with witches – to brew beer. Many women were executed because of this.


4. There is a company in the UK that makes ‘beer’ for dogs

Ingredients include malt, flax, dandelion and of course, chicken flavouring. The aim of the doggy beer is meant to foster social bonding between dogs and their owners.
