Beer Lovers' Day
Yes, today is another of those days I bet you didn't even know existed, although in parts of the world beer is celebrated on many different days, today is Beer Lovers' Day And did you know a beer lover is called a cerevisaphile (amongst other things 🤣😂).
Beer is one of the oldest and most widely consumed alcoholic drinks in the world, and the third most popular drink overall after water and tea.
Around the world, humans consume over 50 billion gallons of beer every year.
The first records of beer can be seen as far back as the Egyptians and Romans, and in some places was considered safer to drink than water as the water often contained parasites which were killed by the alcohol in the beer.
In Ancient Egypt, women would brew beer as an offering to the gods. Aside from offerings, beer was also considered a feminine drink, while men traditionally had wine. How times have changed.
"Milk is for babies. When you grow up you have to drink beer." - Arnold Schwarzenegger.
“A man who lies about beer makes enemies.” - Stephen King.
So however you may be going to celebrate today, enjoy.
And of course there is a huge range of places to drink beer here in Vilanova, at the Xiringuitos on the beach, in the bars, and on the cafe terraces to mention but three.
