There are a few phrases we often hear about beer that are actually not true. We are used to them, we believe in them and pass them on. It’s time to break the chain of myths.
Despite the fact that many of these beliefs seem to be true and reasonable, they are completely untrue, which has no scientific confirmation. In the new article, we will delve into the myths that beer drinkers believe. Go deep and you, if you love this drink. Or share it with a beer lover friend.
1. Beer should always be served ice cold.
Mmmm, hot summer day, terrace, a bottle of ice-cold beer. Yummy, right? If you’re one of those who always serve beer as cold as an iceberg because you’re afraid of the bad smell from the heat, don’t worry.
Beer perfectly withstands temperature changes, transition from warm to cold and vice versa before it is opened. Some varieties even need to be served warm to achieve the right taste.
What beer hates is sunlight. So it is recommended not to take beer in the refrigerator, which is on the sunny side, directly under direct sunlight. This beer will stink.
2. If you drink beer before stronger drinks, you will have a hangover, but if you don’t
Scientists have debunked this myth. And it really doesn’t matter what order you drink your drinks in. And it doesn’t even matter if you only drink beer all evening. Other factors influence the hangover in one way or another, and shamanic dances with a tambourine and beer will not alleviate it.
3. Dark beer is stronger than light beer
Light beer only seems light and white, tender and soft. In fact, you should not assume that the color of the beer determines its strength. It is very important to look at the percentage of alcohol in the drink, and not at its color.
4. Beer grows belly
The term “beer belly” is familiar to every beer lover and lover. Slightly swollen belly? Oh, you have a beer belly, all because of the beer! However, beer cannot change your shape. It is affected by excess calorie intake, sedentary lifestyle and unhealthy habits.
Visceral fat (the same fat on the belly) can cause a lot of health problems, so it is recommended to get rid of it. Try to eat more healthy food, exercise and lead an active lifestyle. And then the “beer belly” (which is actually a myth of pure water) will disappear by itself.
5 Draft Beer Causes Hangovers
Some believe that draft beer causes hangovers much more often and more severely than draft beer. Again, this is a myth. Scientists have researched this claim and found it to be a myth. In fact, there is no connection between draft beer and the severity of the hangover that comes after drinking too much alcohol.
Hangovers are caused by a variety of factors, including dehydration, stomach irritation, inflammation, digestive upsets, and more. Drinking excessive amounts of alcohol, regardless of its type and origin, causes a hangover, and it does not matter if alcohol is on tap or from a bottle.
