It all began in 1929, the year of Saint Valentine’s massacre, Charles L.Grigg of the town of Saint Louis, Missouri, was selling lemon-lime soft drink with a catchy slogan which was “Takes the Ouch out of Grouch”, it became an overnight sensation in that part of the world. Lithium was one of the key substances in the drink which made it what it was, though lithium was a powerful anti-depressant too, the ingredient was scraped off around the 1940s. One of the drink’s objective was to calm the mood of a person, no wonder it had anti-depressants in it. The 7 was a reference to the 7 ounces of Lithium and up was for the bubbles that came above.
One of the myths about Charles L.’s life was that many people believed him to be an albino. Which was why there was a red dot on the logo of 7up.

It has nothing do with Canadians chucking down more beer or is it ? Let’s just get that clear, that is just a stereotype, a positive one somewhat. The reason might be more historical than you might think, would you believe it if the American Revolution didn’t happen, Americans would be drinking the same amount of beer as the Canadians? This is actually true, Canadians use the liters to calculate liquids. When the British introduced the imperial gallon, Americans who didn’t really have a good relation with the British refuse to accept the new rule, which nearly everyone applies. American Pride for once didn’t pay off? Did It?

The country in the Great North have a beer that has more alcohol than that of the American one, but many analyst believe the more crisp taste comes from another factor. The ingredient is the big factor, the Canadian one is brewed with 50% more malt barley but it’s American cousin is more composed off corn which doesn’t help the taste.
Also some beer purists like the more alcohol which the Canadian one offers in greater quantity than the American beer.
