To put it into perspective, Americans drank about seven million gallons of beer last year and beer sales topped out at about thirty-five million dollars for the year according to each state sales tax records. When you stop and think about it that is a lot of beer. Have you ever wondering how beer is actually made? Basically beer is made from four ingredients which are barley, water, hops, and yeast. The basic strategy is to extract the sugars from the grains so that the yeast can turn into alcohol. The beer must be boiled and then it must ferment, which is a fancy word for age or mature, then it’s ready to be bottled and sold. Each beer is made with different flavors to give it its unique taste. Sometimes brewing companies or individuals who are trying to come up with a new beer on their own will spend years trying to come up with a different beer that everyone will love.
