Awesome Gifts for Beer Drinkers
People have been enjoying beer since the beginning of time. Well, that isn't entirely true -- but the Sumerians some 6,000 years ago are credited with discovering the brewing process for the "divine drink" that made them feel "exhilarated, wonderful, and blissful."
Today people love their beer and have even started the practice of holding weddings in a breweries.
Americans consume over 6 billion gallons of beer a year. Let that soak in for a minute then realize beer is the drink of choice for watching a game, relaxing with friends, or celebrating a momentous occasion like a wedding or bachelor party.
Those Sumerians probably never realized how their discovery would lead to centuries of blissful good times.
