A Nightcap with Erdinger Weissbier

For this week’s NightCap we chatted with Christian Blake, the US brand representative for Erdinger Weissbier. For over 130 years, Erdinger’s outstanding quality of wheat beers has been rooted in their passion for Bavarian brewing skills. Erdinger has been brewing exclusively in Erding since 1886 – every single bottle – and they’ve never brewed anything other than the Bavarian specialty “weissbier.”

10 THINGS YOU DIDN’T KNOW ABOUT ALCOHOL

You may know where to find a glass of Pappy Van Winkle or where they grew the hops in your favorite IPA, but we’ll bet you didn’t know these 10 weird factoids about alcohol.

UNDER PRESSURE: A bottle of champagne contains 90 pounds of pressure per square inch (3 times the pressure of a car tire) and as many as 49 million bubbles.

EASY IN, EASY OUT: Ethanol, the intoxicating ingredient in alcoholic beverages, pours directly out of the stomach and small intestine into the bloodstream without being digested.

DRINK YOUR VEGGIES: Almost all fruit, and some vegetables, contain a small amount of alcohol.

BLIND DRUNK: Methanol (a distillation of wood pulp) can destroy the optic nerve. Unscrupulous bootleggers used it to cut grain alcohol during Prohibition, which is how the term originated.

BABY BOTTLES: You probably know that the legal drinking age in much of Europe is 16. But one step further: alcohol is even served in some school cafeterias. Teenage drinking laws in the United States are the strictest in Western society.

GOT MILK? Drinking enough milk can cause a person to blow a .02 on a breathalyzer test, enough to cause legal issues in some states.

IN OTHER WORDS, A BUNCH: It takes about 600 grapes to make a bottle of wine.

CAVEMEN WERE SMART: Research suggests that intentionally fermented beverages existed as early as 10,000 BC.

A BATHTUB OF BEER: The country that drinks the most beer is the Czech Republic, with per capita consumption of almost 40 gallons per year.

HOPE THEY’RE NOT UBER DRIVERS: Research suggests that 0.7% of the world’s population is drunk at any given time. That means 50 million people are drunk right now.
