The world's best-selling beer is... Snow?
Snow is the name of a beer brewed for the Chinese market, and it's cheap: 49 cents for a can, according to Quartz. Perhaps not surprisingly, since there are over 1 billion people in China, it's also the world's largest beer market by volume. Sadly, our theory that it was named after the dude who sang "Informer" has been proven false.
During Prohibition, people were prescribed "medical beer"
"Medical beer" was an obviously made-up cause that "brewers, physicians, and imbibers" used to try to skirt Prohibition's nasty laws in 1921, according to Smithsonian.com. It worked, and doctors could prescribe beer as of March 1921... until November 1921, when Congress changed their minds and banned it once again. And no one ever had a beer ever again in the United States of America.
