What is America’s oldest brewpub and where is it located?
America’s oldest brewpub is the famous Buffalo Bill's Brewery located in Hayward, California. It was opened in 1983 by Bill Owens, now considered one of the founding fathers of the U.S. craft beer/brewpub movement, and celebrated its 30th Anniversary in 2013.
Correction: Buffalo Bill's brewery is actually the 3rd oldest brewpub in the United States. Founded in 1983, Buffalo Bill's opened a year after Grant's Brew Pub began serving beer in 1982. We apologize for this oversight.
Which country drinks the most beer per capita each year?
The Czech Republic wins this one hands down. With an incredible 40 gallons per capita each year, the Czechs are in a league of their own. The republic of Seychelles (an archipelago of 115 islands in the Indian Ocean off Africa’s east coast) are far behind with a mere 30 gallons per capita.
