Today’s Reason to Drink: December 27


It’s Louis Pasteur’s birthday. While the French biologist and chemist is usually hailed for discovering how to pasteurize milk, most of his scientific endeavors involved booze and the whole milk thing was just a sidelight. He made tremendous strides in the field of fermentation, changing the face of the entire industry.
