Our History cont.

Did you know ... After 64 years of business, production came to a screeching halt when General Order No. 99 (Prohibition in the Navy) was sent out and ultimately forced Charles to shut down Solano Brewing Company in 1918.

After almost a century of dormancy, two Solano County natives, who unearthed the history of SBC, decided to pick up where Charles left off and re-imagined what Solano Brewing Company could become in this exciting new time of Craft Brewing.

How does alcohol make you drunk? - Judy Grisel

Follow alcohol on its journey through the body to find out how it causes drunkenness and why it affects people differently. 

Ethanol: this molecule, made of little more than a few carbon atoms, is responsible for drunkenness. Often simply referred to as alcohol, ethanol is the active ingredient in alcoholic beverages. So how exactly does it cause drunkenness, and why does it have dramatically different effects on different people? Judy Grisel explores alcohol's journey through the body.

Beers Are Also Partially Defined By Their ABV Value

Alcohol by volume (abbreviated as ABV, abv, or alc/vol) is a standard measure of how much alcohol (ethanol) is contained in a given volume of an alcoholic beverage (expressed as a volume percent). 

It is defined as the number of milliliters (mL) of pure ethanol present in 100 ml (3.5 imp fl oz; 3.4 US fl oz) of solution at 20 °C (68 °F). The number of milliliters of pure ethanol is the mass of the ethanol divided by its density at 20 °C (68 °F), which is 0.78924 g/ml (0.45621 oz/cu in). 

The ABV standard is used worldwide. The International Organization of Legal Metrology has tables of density of water-ethanol mixtures at different concentrations and temperatures.

Most beers are between 3 and 13%.

Beers Are Partially Defined By Their IBU Value

IBU stands for International Bitterness Units. International Bitterness Units are a unit of measurement for the amount of bittering compounds in a beer (isomerized and oxidized alpha acids, polyphenols, and bittering chemicals). These bittering compounds give a beer varying amounts of bitterness.

Notice our current Beer Listing and how the IBU varies from one beer to the next depending on the type of beer. IPA's have considerably more bitterness than the lager type beers.

Beer History - One Of The Oldest Drinks Humans Have Produced

Beer is one of the oldest drinks humans have produced. The first chemically confirmed barley beer dates back to the 5th millennium BC in Iran, and was recorded in the written history of ancient Egypt and Mesopotamia and spread throughout the world.

As almost any cereal containing certain sugars can undergo spontaneous fermentation due to wild yeasts in the air, it is possible that beer-like drinks were independently developed throughout the world soon after a tribe or culture had domesticated cereal. Chemical tests of ancient pottery jars reveal that beer was produced as far back as about 7,000 years ago in what is today Iran. This discovery reveals one of the earliest known uses of fermentation and is the earliest evidence of brewing to date.

In Mesopotamia, the oldest evidence of beer is believed to be a 6,000-year-old Sumerian tablet depicting people consuming a drink-through reed straws from a communal bowl. A 3,900-year-old Sumerian poem honoring Ninkasi, the patron goddess of brewing, contains the oldest surviving beer recipe, describing the production of beer from bread made from barley.

In China, residue on pottery dating from around 5,000 years ago shows beer was brewed using barley and other grains.

The invention of bread and beer has been argued to be responsible for humanity's ability to develop technology and build civilization. The earliest chemically confirmed barley beer to date was discovered at Godin Tepe in the central Zagros Mountains of Iran, where fragments of a jug, from between 5,400 and 5,000 years ago was found to be coated with beerstone, a by-product of the brewing process.

Beer may have been known in Neolithic Europe as far back as 5,000 years ago,[9] and was mainly brewed on a domestic scale.

Beer produced before the Industrial Revolution continued to be made and sold on a domestic scale, although by the 7th century AD beer was also being produced and sold by European monasteries. During the Industrial Revolution, the production of beer moved from artisanal manufacture to industrial manufacture, and domestic manufacture ceased to be significant by the end of the 19th century. The development of hydrometers and thermometers changed brewing by allowing the brewer more control of the process, and greater knowledge of the results.

Master Cicerone Pat Fahey is a certified expert in beer. So, who better than he to talk us through the history of all the different variations of beer that exist. Where did American lagers originate? Why are Belgian pale ales so hard to come by nowadays?
