Interesting, Weird, and Fun Facts - OMG Facts
The earliest mention of beer in history was in the year 974. Today, hops is the main flavoring agent used in beer, but that wasn’t always the case. Before the 11th century, a compound called gruit was where beer got its flavoring. Gruit is made of several different plants, including Hyoscyamus Niger, commonly known as “Stinking Nightshade”. When Stinking Nightshade is consumed by humans and most animals, it releases chemical to the brain as natural defense system. Side effects from ingesting the plant include hallucinations, dilated pupils, the sensation of flight, extreme energy, flushed skin, and in some cases death.
