So, I'm sure you've heard of hops, after all they are in every* beer! And perhaps you even say something like "Uggh, I hate hoppy beers!" but truthfully without this wonderful plant the beer would be sickly sweet. Hops can be added in such small amounts that the beer is so sweet your face puckers to so hoppy your face puckers or it can just be balanced and nice.
Has anyone ever told you "once a beer has been cold, you can't let it warm up."? While I'm all for treating beer with respect, I just want to help anyone out who has been chastised for doing this. Truth is, it's not really a big deal (unless your are going to cellar your beer). Hoppy Beer is more sensitive to temperature swings but 1-2 times of cold back to room temperature won't effect flavor if you are are going to consume the beer in the next 30 days. Most hoppy beers should be consumed within 30-45 days after purchase...
What is the difference between Ale and Lager?
YALE researchers have recently completed a study that found that evolution has given us a win! In current society we have been sold this story that the "ideal" male body to attract women is for us to look like a Calvin Klein under ware model. Well, this recent study turns that all on it's head!
Turns out that "evolution" takes time! The innate wiring in a woman's brain is still attracted to men on the larger side. How is this explained? Well, from a historical sense, larger men were clearly better providers, they had so much to eat that their bodies were literally stuffed!
