Beer: giving a certain spunk to people’s lives

 

Most people these days relate parties with beer and other alcoholic drinks. It is probably because beer has become one of the party essentials when families and friends gather together. There’s something in this liquor that makes people open up, revel, enjoy, and celebrate the moment. Beer lets people party to the fullest.

So what makes up this drink that it has become one of the social drinks of the world — no matter where people are? Well, like all other drinks and food, beer has certain ingredients that make it like it is and taste it as it is. Also, it follows certain processes and stages before it is finally ready for consumption. Beer production is truly an interesting area that various styles have been adapted and that different countries and places have added its own local taste and sparkle in it.

Beer has some main ingredients, but the taste may vary because of the kind of ingredients used — especially if the ingredients used are locally made or locally produced. This is why various regions have different taste qualities — the bitter or sweet levels will definitely vary. The common or main ingredients of beer are: water, fermentable starch source, flavoring, and secondary starch sources. Water is the main composition of beer, and because the water used is from a local source — meaning there are specific mineral components in it that may not be present in some other sources or areas — it somehow influences the beer characteristics. This is why there are areas, cities, states, or countries that are very good in making certain types of beer. The starch source plays a major role as well, especially that the fermentable material will determine the character or kind of beer. The common starch that’s used in beer is the malted grain or malted barley. Hops or the flower from the hop vine is used for flavoring and preservative — balancing the bitterness and sweetness of the beer. Another ingredient is yeast, which metabolizes the sugars, ferments the beer, and flavors it as well.

Beer may be called by several names in different places, but just the same, it has a common thing — it somehow gives its drinkers a sense of delightful taste and satisfaction. It doesn’t matter what type you like or where you are, as long as there’s beer, a party can be in place. For beer drinkers, drinking beer isn’t just a pastime for them, but it’s more of a part of their regular routine. Beer will always give a smile to everyone who loves to quench his or her thirst for partying and celebration.
