Bring in the Beer

Beer is one of the world’s oldest beverages, with the history of Beer dating back to the some 6th century BC. If we talk about in number of years then it is said that Beer has been brewing for more than 8,000 years across the world and in olden days it was considered a food supplement (its true, for me too), with newer studies showing Beer is actually healthy (I knew it!).

Actually the word Beer comes from the Middle English ber(e), and from the Latin bibere meaning “to drink.” In olden days it was considered that because of its brewing process, Beer is actually safer to drink than the water or milk. That is why Beer was frequently used to mix medicines.

Beer is basically a fermented beverage principally made from four ingredients; water, malted barley, hops, and yeast. Each one of these ingredients imparts its own characteristic flavor to the finished product.
There are numerous varieties of Beer. Commercial brewing and micro brewing (also known as home brewing or pub brewing) have made these varieties.

I have always preferred Beer from Microbreweries over the commercial Beer. For me the reason is taste. The Beer is brewed fresh and it tastes just awesome!

If you are a die hard fan of Beer (just like me!). Then keep looking at this space for more and do share your stories  about beer.

Hope to have Beer together someday!
