beer

Beer is one of the oldest and the most widely consumed alcoholic drinks in the world.
Beer is one of the oldest and the most widely consumed alcoholic drinks in the world. It is produced by the brewing and fermentation of starches, mainly derived from cereal grains (commonly malted barley, though wheat, maize (corn), rice, and oats are also used). During the brewing process, fermentation of the starch sugars in the wort produces ethanol and carbonation in the resulting beer. Most modern beer is brewed with hops, which add bitterness and other flavours and act as a natural preservative and stabilizing agent. Other flavouring agents such as gruit (a herb mixture), herbs, or fruits may be included or used instead of hops.
When beer is distilled, the resulting liquor is a form of whisky.

    Beer

    Keep in mind that I am not a recreational beer drinker, but like wine, I can enjoy a good flavored beer with food, at times. I had been trying to find good German beers at local grocery stores, but no stores in the area seem to carry even the poorer German beers. It was really getting...

    What's Your Favorite Micro-Brew or Craft Brew?

    Here in Silicon Valley, USA, Gordon Birsch Brewery and Restaurant is in downtown San Jose. They brew classic German Beers, Maerzens, Bocks, Heffeweizens, etc. I kind of like Red Tail Ale and Blue Moon. There are many others.
