Fact About Beer You Can Share Around The Bar

April 7 is known as National Beer Day in the United States. This holiday commemorates the day that the Cullen-Harrison Act was enacted. The law allowed for the legal sale of low-alcohol beer in the United States, several months before Prohibition was completely repealed. President Franklin Roosevelt signed it into law on March 22, 1933, and stated, "I think this would be a good time for a beer," noting the end to the nation's 13-year-long dry spell. To celebrate National Beer Day, your favorite sports bar at the Lake of the Ozarks has some fun facts, so grab a cold one and let's get started!

- Censosillicaphobia is the fear of an empty beer glass.

- According to Guinness World Records, the strongest beer ever sold was "The End of History", which was brewed by BrewDog in Scotland. It had an ABV (alcohol by volume) of 55 percent.

- Slugs love beer! The smell of yeasts attracts slugs to beer like moths to a flame. Many slugs feed on decaying plants and beer resembles overripe ripe fruit, which slugs can just not resist.

- Amsterdam pays alcoholics in beer for collecting litter. In addition to beer, the cleaning team gets half a packet of rolling tobacco, free lunch and 10 euros.

- Until 2013, anything containing less than 10 percent of alcohol was considered a food item, which means beer wasn't considered alcohol.

- The country with the greatest retail sales of beer is the Czech Republic. In 2011, 30 US gallons of beer were bought per person.

- Table beer is a low-alcohol (typically not over 1.5%) brew sold in large bottles to be enjoyed with meals. Until the 1970s in Belgium, table beer was served in school cafeterias.

- In Finland, they hold a wife carrying competition, and the prize is the wife's weight in beer.

- Beer is the oldest produced beverage and is believed to date back to the early Neolithic age or 9500 BC. The oldest known recipe is for a 4,000-year-old beer made by the Sumerians. The oldest beer advertisement was found on a clay tablet from 4000 BC.

- According to Guinness World Records, the largest glass of beer contained 550 US gallons of Stod Fold Golf. It was produced by Angus Wood and Ed Dupuy of Stod Fold Brewing Company in Halifax, UK. The glass measured 7ft 4in tall with a diameter of 3ft 8in. It took more than one hour to fill the glass.

- Those who worked on the Pyramids of Egypt were often partially paid in beer. Workers at Giza received about 4 liters of beer per day.

- In Great Britain alone, it's rumored that 93,000 liters of beer are lost each year in facial hair.

- Brown bottles help keep beer fresh. In addition, storing beer upright reduces the chance of oxidation and contamination from the cap.
