You drink some beers that cause bilious headache. Perhaps
you think that ail beers do.
The cause of biliousness is the lack of age too much haste
to put the beer on the market. To ferment beer thoroughly
requires a process of months. Without it the fermentation takes
place in your stomach. That is the cause of biliousness.
Hurried beer is unhealthful. Schlitz beer is kept for months
in refrigerating rooms with a capacity of 265,000 barrels kept
almost at freezing point until it is well fermented. Schlitz beer is
