George Washington was a devout 'beer' lover

Washington: President George Washington was a devout beer lover , it has been revealed.




Mark Will-Weber, author of 'Mint Juleps with Teddy Roosevelt: The Complete History of Presidential Drinking,' said that America's first president loved a particular Philadelphia-based beverage called "Porter Beer," Fox News reported.


Will-Weber added that Washington used to mix molasses with it, which may explain why Washington's teeth were not that great, but it was just enough sweetness and thickness to add to the authentic porter which they used to get from Britain before the war and then they learned to brew their own.
