Whatever readers shout when they raise a glass, sales of beer-related books are steadily increasing as consumers spend more time at home. With most bars closing or limiting capacities, readers are not only turning to drinking more at home but are also exploring home-brewing more than ever before.
For curious readers interested in learning more about one of the world’s most popular beverages, encourage accounts to stock titles from this collection of Penguin Random House’s bestselling beer books.
Give accounts an extra boost when discussing these books by sharing a few of these quick beer facts, too:
- The oldest known recipe for beer comes from the Sumerians and dates back 4,000 years.
- George Washington used beer in his political campaigns, offering it to voters.
- The 2010 Texas State Fair featured a “fried beer” treat—which won the prize for Most Creative Fried Food.
- More beer is consumed in North Dakota than in any other state, approximately 43.6 gallons per person (as of 2013).
- According to the Brewers Association, there are currently 8,184 craft breweries in the United States.
- The fear of an empty glass (be it beer, wine, cocktail, etc…) is called “cenosillicaphobia.”
