the precious amber liquid: beer!

As metalheads, we spend a lot of time drinking it, but just how much do we actually know about the precious amber liquid?

The Oatmeal comic master Matthew Inman has put together a cool comic outlining 20 things that he thinks everyone should know about beer.

Did you know, for example, that the Vikings believed that a giant goat with endless beer-giving udders was awaiting them in Valhalla? No wonder they were so fearless in battle. Or that you should always store beer upright, to limit contamination and oxidation from the cap? These and 18 other beery facts make up this cute and informative comic.
