Fakti, ko iespējams nezināji par alu. Vai zināji, ka:

Facts you probably didn't know about beer. Did you know that:



1. ASV baltajā namā ir savi alus darītāji? Baltā nama blogā minēts, ka eksprezidents Obama pats brūvē alu. Nez vai labs sanācis? Es labprāt gribētu to alu noprovēt.

The US White House has its own brewers? A White House blog says former President Obama is brewing beer himself. I wonder if it's good? I would love to try that beer.


2. Alutiņš tik tiešām ir mūsu vecākais brālis! Arheologi Mezopotāmijā ir atraduši aptuveni 4000 gadus vecu alus receptes akmens plāksnīti, uz kuras skaidri redzams alus simbols - vertikāla krūze ar smailu pamatni.

In fact, beer is our older brother! Archaeologists in Mesopotamia have found a stone plate of a 4,000 year old beer recipe with a clear beer symbol on it - a vertical jar with a pointed base.


3. Pirmās profesionālās alus darītājas bija sievietes. Kas to būtu domājis?

The first professional brewers were women. Who would have thought that?


4. Alus pongs ir izplatīta spēle, kur ar pingponga bumbiņu jātrāpa glāzē. Tikai te drusciņ jāaizdomājas, cik daudz cilvēku ir pieskārušies bumbiņai pirms tam. Alum, pēc spēles, noteikti ir cita kvalitāte.

Beer pong is a common game where you have to land a ping pong ball in beer glass. Only give a thought about how many people have touched the ball before. Beer, after the game, definitely has a different quality.


5. Bija arī laiks, kad alu lietoju siltu. Ir atrasts padoms, kas datējams ar 17 gs., ka silts alus ir veselīgāks. Silts alus garšo kā ..., bet veselīgs! Kurš grib pamēģināt?

There was also a time when beer was drank warm. A piece of advice dating back to the 17th century has been found that warm beer is healthier. Warm beer tastes like ... but healthy! Who wants to try?


6. Alu jāglabā tumšā vietā, jo gan gaisma, gan policija tev var sabojāt apetīti.

Beer should be stored in a dark place, because both the light and the police can ruin your appetite.


7. Alus satur vielas, kas uzlabo kaulu veselību. Ja kauli paliek stiprāki, tad var atļauties arī nelielu alus vēderiņu, vai ne?

Beer contains substances that improve bone health. If the bones become stronger, you can also afford a small beer belly, right?


8. Čehijā ir Alus Spa. Alus vannas atver poras, mīkstina ādu, uzlabo asinsriti un bagātina ķermeni ar vitamīniem.

There is a Beer Spa in the Czech Republic. Beer baths open pores, soften skin, improves blood circulation and enrich the body with vitamins.
