Alcoholica Esoterica

Alcoholica EsotericaAre you that guy who likes to spout facts and figures when he's drunk? You take a few drinks and all of a sudden you're a font of knowledge who makes sure everyone around him knows it? C'mon, admit it. It's OK. All we recommend is you read Alcoholica Esoterica so next time, your facts and figures are interesting - and by interesting we mean related to booze.

Did you know...
• that the word bar is short for barrier? Yes, that’s right—to keep the customers from getting at all the booze.
• that Winston Churchill’s mother supposedly invented the Manhattan?
• that the Pilgrims landed at Plymouth Rock because the sailors on the Mayflower were running low on beer and were tired of sharing?
• that you have a higher chance of being killed by a flying Champagne cork than by a poisonous spider?
• that the Code of Hammurabi mandated that brewers of low-quality beer be drowned in it?
• that beer was so popular with medieval priests and monks that in the thirteenth century they stopped baptizing babies with holy water and started using beer?
