       "Six Items a Day of Enduring Insignificance" 

Greetings Infomaniacs,

While we are in St. Louis, my boyfriend and I plan on taking 
a tour of the Anheuser-Busch Brewery. 

This brewery has been in operation since 1865 and serves as 
the world headquarters for the Anheuser-Busch brewing 

They offer complimentary tours of the brewery to let the 
public see how their products are made, and even give out 
free samples of beer! Can't beat that... 

Since we're on the topic of beer, why don't we learn a few 
tidbits about this popular beverage...



P.S. You can discuss this issue or any other topic in 
the new Trivia Today forum. Check it out here...

                    TODAY'S MYSTERY QUOTE 

QUOTE: “Always do sober what you said you'd do drunk. That 
will teach you to keep your mouth shut.”

HINT: (1899-1961), American novelist, short-story writer, 
and journalist.


                        RANDOM TIDBITS 

Beer has been a popular beverage for a long time. Babylonian 
clay tablets show detailed recipes of beer making in 4300 
BC. Beer was also brewed by the ancient Chinese, Assyrians 
and Incas. An Egyptian text of 1600 BC gives 100 medical 
prescriptions using beer. A few years ago, the New Castle 
Brewery in England brewed 1,000 bottles of Tutankhamun Ale 
from a 3,200-year old recipe found in the sun temple of 
Queen Nefertiti.


Brewing is the process of changing water and grain into 
beer through a yeast catalyst. The quality of the water is 
extremely important. Hard water produce a bitter ale, soft 
water produce bitter lager. Barley or hops, or a combination 
of them, is used for the grain. Getting dry grain ready for 
fermentation is called malting. The grain is steeped in 
water until it sprouts. The sprouting or germination is not 
allowed to end naturally but is interrupted either by drying 
or roasting in kilns.


The best taste usually is acquired at an alcohol contents of 
4.7% ethanol per volume. Less than that results in a beer 
with a bland taste. More than that and the higher alcohols 
(butanol, pentanol etc) become overpowering and spoils the 
taste. The strongest beer type by alcohol content is 
doppelbock, which is usually 8%-10% ethanol by its volume 
content. The strongest beer brand in production is German 
"Eisbock", with some 14% ethanol by volume.

The oldest brewery in Munich, the Augustiner brewery, was 
founded in 1294, when, on the order of the bishop of 
Freising, an Augustinian monastery was established at the 
Haberfeld, just outside the gates of the city. Munich was 
famous for its breweries operated by monks. 


Ice beer is produced by freezing the brew and filtering the 
ice crystals, increasing the alcohol content. This process 
was already known in the Middle Ages to "cold-distil" 
brandy from wine, and the ancient Chinese produced rice 
hooch that way. The Canadians adopted the cold-distillation 
method for ice beer.


Commercial beer making was established in 1200 AD in 
present-day Germany. In 1506, the German Purity Law is 
issued, specifying that beer ingredients must only be 
water, barley, wheat and hops. Bottling of beer started 
in 1605. Currently worldwide, 20,000 brands of beer are 
brewed in 180 styles, from ales, lagers, pilsner and stouts 
to bitters, cream ales and iced beer.
