Are you a beer connoisseur? Take this quiz to find out just how well you know your brands.
Did we really compile a list of 43 popular beers? It seems that we have! Although, honestly, we could have kept you busy for weeks, since there are 2,500 brands of beer in the United States alone. We figured you probably wouldn't have recognized most of the smaller, independent brands, though.
Beer has been around since at least 5500 B.C., with solid evidence of the brew found by archaeologists around 3500 B.C. Some experts insist that beer was a beverage option as long ago as 10000 B.C, but that has not yet been proven. Either way, it's likely that beer has been in play for as long as barley has been grown. The first written records of beer are from ancient Egypt and Iran, with evidence that the workers who built the pyramids were paid in beer and given several liters of beer each day to quench their thirst.
Today, the world enjoys a whopping 35 billion gallons of beer every year, making it one of the biggest global industries.
