Today’s infographic is entitled 24 Things You Didn’t Know About Beer, although at first glance it’s really 23. That’s because their very first one, the Ben Franklin quote that’s been thoroughly discredited years ago, continues to show up everywhere. I’d like to believe that Franklin wouldn’t mind being credited with the quote, but unfortunately the historical record appears to be utterly void of any record he ever said it and that it’s ore likely it was an opportunistic borrowing of another statement he said in a letter to a friend about wine. It’s a shame that’s how they start out, because there’s some interesting ones that follow, even if a majority of beer geeks probably knew most, if not all of them.
