It's Beer O'Clock Somewhere

It's been a long week so let's kick back with a beer-themed Friday night dinner. All you beer-lovers will enjoy this Friday's suggestion!

For dinner: Cheesy Potato & Beer Soup with Beer Bread

To drink: Beer, obviously! We like Amstel Light, but swill whatever brand you prefer!

Fun facts about BEER:

  • Beer is the second most popular beverage in the world, coming in behind tea.

  • To get rid of the foam at the top of beer (the head), stick your fingers in it. (This is also true for champagne!)

  • The oldest known written recipe is for beer.

  • Tossing salted peanuts in a glass of beer makes the peanuts dance. New party trick for the weekend!

  • Many actors started out as bartenders: Sandra Bullock, Bruce Willis, Tom Arnold, Chevy Chase, Kris Kristofferson and Bill Cosby are a few of these. Imagine them serving your beer!

  • American beer is made mostly by rice, unlike the beers of other countries. This was invented to give American beer a lighter taste and tap into the market of women buyers.

  • If you collect beer bottles you are a labeorphilist. Good word to add to the vocabulary!

  • To keep your beer glass or mug from sticking to your bar napkin, sprinkle a little salt on the napkin before you set your glass down.

Enjoy Beer Night!!

We are happy to have Hanna Skeppner on board this semester as an intern for As a Swedish-American, she has many exciting ideas to add a new twist to our old faves. Hope you enjoy her recipes and tips!
