Zythology is the study of beer and beer making; it is to beer what ‘oenology’ is to wine. A zythologist is a true beer connoisseur who can share many interesting facts about an immensely complex and sophisticated beverage, its ingredients, and the roles they play in the brewing process.
Which American city was once known as the 'beer capital of the world'?
Milwaukee was, at one time, known as the beer capital of the world as it was home to Blatz, Pabst, Schlitz, Miller’s, and a host of smaller brewers. Now, it is home to the Miller Brewing Company, which employs over 2,000 people. Currently, Portland and Philadelphia each claim to be the Beer Capital of the World, with several microbreweries in each.
