Today is National Beer Lovers Day

”Milk is for babies. When you grow up you have to drink beer.”
~ Arnold Schwarzenegger

Beer is one of the world’s most popular alcoholic drink. It has been around for centuries dating as far back as the Egyptians and Romans. Nowadays, Craft beer is a million-dollar business and breweries are becoming the most popular hobby to take part in.

History of Beer Lover’s Day. There are many different ways to brew beer, as the way we process beer has changed and evolved over time. However, this day dedicated to all the different kinds of beer and the celebration of beer lovers. As it is one of the oldest beverages humanity has ever produced, it dates back to the 5th millennium BC in Iran, as ancients were drinking beer upon its discovery. However, our modern society is crazy about beer due to its taste, the way it makes people feel, and the commemorative way in which beer is used. It’s generally used for celebration or a get-together and it is everywhere.

Small facts about beer and beer lovers include the fact that a beer lover or enthusiast is called a cerevisaphile. Another interesting fact is that Germany serves beer ice cream in Popsicle form. Its alcoholic content is less than that found in “classic” beer. Fact three includes how they used mugs with a whistle baked into the rim, the whistle being used to summon the barmaid. It has been suggested this practice gave birth to the phrase “wet your whistle.” The only instance in which beer was prohibited on a legal level was the prohibition period of the 1920s. Lastly, centuries ago in England, pub visitors used a novel innovation that enabled them to get their beer served quickly. But beer has a long and detailed history, but no matter the history, many people do know the fact that beer is good. Source: daysoftheyear.com

Today in History: United States nicknamed Uncle Sam

On this day in 1813, the United States gets its nickname, Uncle Sam. The name is linked to Samuel Wilson, a meat packer from Troy, New York, who supplied barrels of beef to the United States Army during the War of 1812.Wilson (1766-1854) stamped the barrels with “U.S.” for United States, but soldiers began referring to the grub as “Uncle Sam’s.” The local newspaper picked up on the story and Uncle Sam eventually gained widespread acceptance as the nickname for the U.S. federal government.

Today in History: Titanic found in 1985

On this day in 1985, a team of American and French researchers discovered the sunken wreck of the luxury liner RMS Titanic south-southeast of the coast of Newfoundland in a depth of 12,500 feet (3,800 m). Key to the discovery was a remotely controlled undersea vehicle called Argo which helped verify the ship’s identity with cameras and sonar. The Titanic sunk on April 15, 1912 after hitting an iceberg on her maiden voyage, resulting in the loss of more than 1,500 lives. The ship was the biggest and most luxurious liner of her day.

Today in History: Josef Müller-Brockmann passed away in 1996

Josef Müller-Brockmann studied architecture, design, and history of art at the Kunstgewerbeschule and the University in Zurich. At the age of 22, he opened his own studio with a focus on graphic design, exhibition design, and photography. His objective design practices led to the breakthrough of the “Swiss Style” during the 1950s. In 1958, Müller-Brockmann became the founder and co-editor (until 1965) of the journal Neue Grafik (New Graphic Design), spreading the principles of Swiss Design internationally. Müller-Brockmann never allowed his designs to be influenced by trends or styles but followed his own aesthetics and ethics. His posters provided numerous institutions and companies with a convincing graphic appearance and became a model in their quality. Müller-Brockmann passed away on August 30, 1996 in Zurich.
