Beer & Cider

What? Beer is made by fermenting cereals, typically malted barley or wheat. Hops are a very common natural preservative and flavouring, but fruit, herbs and spices may also be considered traditional.

Where? Almost every corner of the globe has its own local beer. Only water and tea are consumed by humans more. And we're working on that.

When? As soon as humans began to write, the historical records mention beer. It is therefore possible beer drinking delayed the invention of writing.

How? The only thing to watch is temperature of serve. IPAs and Pilsners cool, most ales and porters a bit warmer. Most labels will guide you.

Tip For Beginners: Beer can be categorized into bottom, top and wild-fermented, referring to the type of yeast used and which drives elements of the flavour.
