24 Things You Probably Didn’t Know About Beer

Thanks to hipsters, the common man probably knows more about beer and zythology (“the study of beer and beer making”) than ever before. But did you know the oldest beer ad in recorded history appeared as far back 4000 BC? Or that IPAs were invented because British beer kept spoiling on its way to India, so brewers added more alcohol and more hops just to keep it fresh on the trip? And what about that cenosillicaphobia, huh? The fear of an empty beer glass, held by pretty much everyone and their moms?

Convert Measurements in the Kitchen with This Handy Infografik

How many cups is a pint or a quart or a gallon? How many teaspoons is each? When you're cooking and have to quickly convert kitchen measurements, a graphic chart like this is a great help. Sometimes you just don't have the right measuring tool for the recipe you're using. This "Common Cook's How-Many Guide to Kitchen Conversions" from graphic designer Shannon Lattin (who brought us an essential vitamins reference guide) shows you what to do for those quick conversions. At first glance, it probably seems more confusing than a simple liquid conversion chart. But when you look at it more closely and if you print it out for posting on your kitchen wall, it's pretty ingenious. The lines connect each measurement to their equivalent. (Note the + sign indicates an added measure to add. And, alas, there are no ounces here.) Source: Convert Measurements in the Kitchen with This Handy Infographic
