24 Amazing Beer Facts We Bet You Didn't Know

I love beer, the foamy head it produces when it is poured, the lace it leaves when the foamy head quickly dissipates. Whenever I give myself a beer treat, I hold the glass up and swirl it a bit I like it is done with wine, it pulls out the scents and carbonations from the brew.
