What the hell is a beer?!

Question: What the hell is a beer!?
beer = delicious!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

Beer is an alcoholic beverage made from malted grains, hops, yeast,
and water!. The grain is usually barley or wheat, but sometimes corn
and rice are used as well!. Fruit, herbs, and spices may also be used
for special styles!. In the distant past, the terms "beer" and "ale"
meant different things!. "Ale" was originally made without using hops,
while "beer" did use hops!. Since virtually all commercial products
now use hops, the term "beer" now encompasses two broad categories:
ales and lagers!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

it is an alcoholic beverage

Beer is the world's oldest[1] and most widely consumed[2] alcoholic beverage and the third most popular drink overall after water and tea!.[3] It is produced by the brewing and fermentation of starches, mainly derived from cereal grains—the most common of which is malted barley, although wheat, maize/corn, and rice are also widely used!. Most beer is flavoured with hops, which add bitterness and act as a natural preservative, though other flavourings such as herbs or fruit may occasionally be included!. Alcoholic beverages distilled after fermentation or fermented from non-starch sources such as grape juice (wine) or honey (mead) are not classified as beer!.

Some of humanity's earliest known writings refer to the production and distribution of beer: the Code of Hammurabi included laws regulating beer and beer parlours,[4] and "The Hymn to Ninkasi," a prayer to the Mesopotamian goddess of beer, served as both a prayer and as a method of remembering the recipe for beer in a culture with few literate people!.[5][6] Today, the brewing industry is a global business, consisting of several dominant multinational companies and many thousands of smaller producers ranging from brewpubs to regional breweries!.

The basics of brewing beer are shared across national and cultural boundaries and are commonly categorized into two main types—the globally popular pale lagers and the regionally distinct ales which are further categorised into other varieties such as pale ale, stout and brown ale!. The strength of beer is usually around 4% to 6% alcohol by volume (abv!.) though may range from less than 1% abv!., to over 20% abv!. in rare cases!.

Beer forms part of the culture of various beer-drinking nations and has acquired various social traditions and associations, such as beer festivals and a rich pub culture involving activities such as pub crawling or pub games such as bar billiards!.Www@FoodAQ@Com
