Summary:
Whether light, dark, bottled, tapped, great tasting, or less filling America loves beer--20% of the world's beer is brewed here. As old as civilization and pre-dating bread, we'll take a look at beer's history in the US. Believe it or not, the Mayflower was on its way to the Hudson River Valley but dropped anchor in Plymouth because of shortages in provisions--including "beor" ale. By the 1800s, Germans were bringing different beer-making recipes and know-how. And by the turn of the 20th century, brewers were taking advantage of new technologies such as artificial refrigeration, pasteurization, and transportation. But breweries had to survive the Prohibition until 1933 when it ended and beer was back on tap. After WWII, the aluminium can made beer drinkers happy because it now fit neatly in the fridge. There are currently 1,500 US breweries with a growing number of micro-breweries that have revived many old recipes and giving beer drinkers more choice.
