National Drink Beer Day is celebrated every year on September 28 and is dedicated to one of the most popular drinks in the world. Do you have a favorite type of beer? It is time to drink a bottle or try new varieties. Today there is a huge selection of beer – porters, lagers, ales, and more.
The history of this foamy drink begins in ancient Egypt. About 5 thousand years ago, it was used as a ceremonial drink. Archaeologists and historians have managed to find scrolls that describe beer recipes. However, there is a version that it appeared much earlier – more than 10 thousand years ago in Mesopotamia, when there was no written language yet. In Europe, the drink appeared in the Middle Ages. Back then, people preferred to drink beer instead of the dirty water. At the same time, German monks appeared who came up with fermentation techniques; with their help, something resembling the modern foam-top appeared.
- In some cities, it is cheaper to order a glass of beer than a glass of water, like in Prague.
- The Europeans who came to the New World were so fond of beer, the first thing they did was to establish its production.
- Today, there are thousands of beer recipes that differ in the type of yeast, fermentation processes, and initial ingredients.
- For lovers of exquisite drinks with an unusual taste, there are craft varieties.
