Since I've been at BYU, I've developed a slight addiction to Apple Beer. I usually get the bottles instead of cans because they're a little more fun. Yesterday they only had cans, on which they had printed a short history of Apple Beer. It said:
Finally, the genius of Bavarian biermeisters in a soft drink! Early in the 20th century, they created Apple Beer by using the unique flavor of small, aromatic, Sicilian apples. Originally known as Fassbrause - the soft drink with a head - this remarkable beverage was prepared and delivered much like beer, in wooden barrels, sitting on the back of a horse-drawn wagon. Celebrate Apple Beer's rich tradition by enjoying this taste of the Old World.Fassbrause! I had no idea it was the same thing! I mean, it tastes a little different, but it's pretty close. Oh man, I just thought that was the coolest thing ever. Kinda makes me miss Germany and whatnot.
