About Strange Brew

History is full of weird, strange, occasionally wonderful facts. The past is FULL of stories that are stranger than anything you’ve seen on Netflix during your quarantine binge watching (no judgment, we’ve been doing it, too). We’re collecting a ton of those stories right here!

Mummy unwrapping as a social event? Got it.

Motorcycle chariot racing? Yep, it’s been done.

Bizarre “cures” for the plague? Oh, yeah, they did that.

You’ll also find short reviews of the coffee we’re drinking, because who doesn’t like a good cup of coffee when going down the weirdness rabbit hole, and links to other sources of even more strange history, in case you want to go even deeper into the weird side of history.

Come on in – the coffee is hot and the facts are strange!
