Happy St. Patrick’s Day!!! – What’s your favorite beer? – Types of Beer that are Bad for You!!!


There are more than 2,100 breweries that manufacture beer in the United States. They range in size from industry giants to brew pubs and microbreweries

  • The U.S. produced 196 million barrels of beer in 2009.
  • The U.S. consumes roughly 20 US gallons of beer per capita annually.
  • In 2008, the United States was ranked sixteenth in the world in per capita consumption, while total consumption was second only to China.
  • Prohibition in the early twentieth century caused nearly all American breweries to close.
  • After prohibition was repealed the industry had consolidated into a small number of large-scale breweries.
  • The majority of the new breweries in the U.S. are small breweries and brewpubs, who, as members of the Brewers Association, are termed “craft breweries” to differentiate them from the larger and older breweries.
  • The most common style of beer produced by the big breweries is American lager.
  • Most of the smaller breweries, which were founded in the 1980′s, produce a range of styles.
  • Beer styles originating in the United States include:
    American pale ale, Pennsylvania porter, American IPA, steam beer, amber ale, cream ale and Cascadian dark ale.

  1. I love Guinness! Used to drink it all the time when I was living in Ireland 🙂 But beers from my country (Slovakia) are pretty good, too! 🙂 Mostly those less known, local brands!

    St. Patrick’s Day =/= Alcohol
    Can we destroy the stereotype? Can we talk about the actual history, culture, or contributions by the Irish and their diaspora? Fun Fact: This year marks the 100th anniversary of the Easter Rising.

    I really enjoy our local craft brewers concoctions…except I stay away from heavy IPAs. Lots of fun at several places lately where they serve up a flight…small tastings of several different brews. Thanks for this fun post! And #happystpatricksday to you too!

  4. I’m a Stella man. And this is one of my favorite episodes

    Not a beer drinker, but I found this interesting.
    I have enjoyed Guinness (in Scotland) and Heineken in the past though.
