Love beer? Here's a list of the top 10 beer myths so you can win that bar bet:

Beer Myth 7: The best beers are in green bottles.

As it turns out, brown bottles protect the beer from the light much better than green bottles or clear bottles. This myth comes from when there was a shortage of brown glass in Europe after WWII. The European beers were bottled in green instead, so green bottles came to represent imports. This certainly isn't the case anymore.

Bravo! Great post!

Sometimes a good micro brew/home brew beats an upscale beer due to the freshness alone. Wait too long and even the best beers taste like wet cardboard.

Avoid the fluorescent light skunk by buying your six-packs packed in cardboard.
