It takes just four ingredients to make beer, but don’t let the simplicity of its makeup fool you into thinking there isn’t much to talk about. The history of beer dates back a whopping 13,000 years, so just reading through its timeline can be daunting. Add in the creative chemistry that gave us everything from pure pilsners to mango-pineapple-citrus hazy imperial IPAs, and you have a lot to learn!
Nevertheless, our amazing beer guides manage to remember every bit of it – which is a huge reason why our brew tours are so highly rated. Think you know beer? Take a stab at this quiz and see if you have what it takes to be a beer guide!
