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.

I used sliced veggies for the dipping. Tortilla chips or potato chips can also work with this dip. Use what you / your guests would like!
I used a white cheddar...

Do you like your bocks in the Spring, crisp...
Some time ago I discovered Trappist beer. In a pub in my town, the Knulp, the friendly owners explained to me what these beers are and why they are so special and the owner when he sees me says in my language "bevi la buona birra trappista" Trappist beers brewed in these monasteries use...
Spezzatino di Manzo con Piselli, is a classic Italian Secondo Piatto, typical of wintertime, where beef chunks are slowly cooked in the broth becoming very tender.
However, I have moved away for a moment by replacing the classic preparation with white wine, with a full-bodied beer, double malt...

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...
