Don't Worry, Beer Happy

A Beverage That Stood The Test of Time

We've all "cracked open a cold one" with our friends and families. May it be on a hot summer day at the beach, or at a relative's birthday party in a restaurant, beer is a staple drink. Whether you are feeling down, excited, adventurous, or ecstatic, beer will always be perfect for the occasion, and it has been so for longer than we could ever imagine.Beer is the oldest recipe that was ever recorded. Researchers suggest that papyrus scrolls from the Ancient Egypt era were found to have contained illustrations of the brewing process that could have been written as far back as 5,000 B.C. In relation, archaeologists were able to find some residue of quite possibly the oldest barley beer ever. The residue was found inside a jar at the Godin Tepe site in modern-day Iran, which could be dated to 3400 B.C. However, researchers suggest that chances are, the first beer ever could have been made 2000 years before that. Currently, we are unable to pinpoint the exact era of when the first beers were chugged, and we may never find out, ever.

The first beers that we know of were made by brewing fruits such as pomegranates and dates, as well as other indigenous herbs. Quite frankly, if we were to recreate a beer with these ingredients, it would not be a pleasant drink, especially when compared to the variety of delicious beers available today. Eventually, beer found its way to other civilizations and was deeply loved by many. Not only was it a drink that made them feel good and carefree, but also, beer as an alternative to water in some communities, as through the fermentation process, bacteria were killed-off and the beer was made even safer to drink than their water supply.


A Beverage Loved Deeply By Our Ancestors

Researchers discovered that the Babylonians had about 20 recipes for beer. Moreover, Egyptian Pharaohs were even buried with vats of beer in their sarcophagi, and the workers who made the pyramids were "paid" with beer. Beer brewing was also a religious tradition, with the "Hymn to Ninkasi" being a worship song of the Sumerians. This hymn was passed down orally from generation to generation and was also written down on clay tablets that were discovered by archaeologists. The Sumerians loved the beer so much that they made sure to drink it as cleanly as possible. To avoid drinking sediments that might end up in their pints, they made the first-ever straws using reeds or gold, depending on their social class of course. It is quite amazing that the straws that were made specifically for beer drinking found its way to our modern drinks, too.

Modern beer was born in the 12th Century. Malted barley has been the go-to ingredient for hundreds of years at this point, but during the Middle Ages, German monks began using wild hops in the brewing process and this ingredient caught on, as they discovered that hops added a bitterness that was pleasing and thirst-quenching. Not only that, but the use of hops also extended the life of the beer, acting as a natural preservative. This beer would very much taste similar to the ones we love drinking today, a mere 7 centuries later. Beer's popularity continued to rise over the centuries. In America, people got used to watered-down beer due to the Prohibition. This beer is light and pale in color and is prominent even today with the mass-marketed beers we get at basically any store. Needless to say, beer is here to stay.


Choosing The Right Beer For The Occasion

In our modern world, craft beers have become a very sophisticated practice. Some even consider it an art form, which could be intimidating to people who are not familiar with the different kinds of beers. For the most part, beers are classified as either lagers or ales. Ales are made through top fermentation, and lagers are made through bottom fermentation. Afterward, the beer is subcategorized depending on its style and flavor. Here is the complete list of the types of beers:

1. Pale Lagers/Pilsners
This type of beer is lighter in flavor and because of the yeast used in the bottom fermentation having a lower tolerance to alcohol, the alcohol content in this is lower as well. Examples include the American Lager, also called "watered-down beer", the German Helles, the German Pilsner, and the Bohemian Pilsner. These beers are perfect to be paired with American cuisine, German cuisine, and Asian cuisine, as well as spicy food and cheeses. This type of beer is easily found on common celebrations such as birthday parties, trips to the beach, or a chill night out with friends, as they do not intoxicate in liberal amounts and are very easy to drink down. Pale Lagers are considered to be the most approachable type of beer since they tend to be easy on the palette and flavors are toned down.

2. Dark Lagers
This type of beer tends to have a smooth and malty flavor, with notes of toasted caramel. The alcohol content on dark lagers sits around 4.8-5.5%, which is higher than Pale Lagers but sits in the middle when compared to other types of beer. Even though these are dark and have a higher alcohol content, they tend to be not as bitter as they look. These lagers are more aromatic and flavorful than pale lagers. Dark Lagers are best paired with German cuisine, Mexican Cuisine, meats, vegetables, and spicy cheese. These are a step up to the pale lagers in terms of approachability but are a welcome one especially to those who want to try something more flavorful without having to pass out drunk after a pint or two. Examples include the Amber American Lager, Oktoberfest, German Schwarzbier, and Vienna Lager.

3. German Bocks
Bocks are notably heavy in terms of malt and they have considerable notes of sweetness and nuttiness. This sits around with an alcohol level of 6-8%, with the taste being much stronger than the common lagers. These are perfect for those who want a step up from common lagers and might be too much for new drinkers. These pairs well with heavy foods such as steaks, but are also good with chocolate and Italian cuisine. These are not common for known celebrations but can be sought out in craft bars. Examples include the traditional Bock, Doppelbock, Weizenbock, and Maibock.

4. Brown Ales
These beers feature notes of maltiness with toasty caramel flavors, similar to Dark Lagers, but tend to be more bitter or hoppy. They feature mid-range alcohol content of around 4.2-6.3%. These pair well with heavy foods, American cuisine, poultry, and gouda cheese. Examples include the American Brown Ale and English Brown Ale.

5. Pale Ales
Pales ales, in general, feature a hoppy flavor with notes of caramel as well but lower in alcohol content. They are light and easy to drink similar to Pale Lagers but are slightly more bitter. The alcohol content sits around 4.4-6% on these, which is perfect for basic celebrations. These pair well with American cuisine, fish, meat, bleu cheese, and spicy food. Examples include the American Amber Ale, American Pale Ale, Blonde Ale, English Bitter, and English Pale Ale.

6. India Pale Ales (IPAs)
These Ales boast strong hop bitterness with notes of pine and flowery flavors. These beers also have high alcohol content, ranging from 6-14%, which is definitely not advisable for beginners. They look just like normal beers you can get on groceries, but the color is the direct opposite of how strong these beers are. One pint can feel like a six-pack, so this is perfect for special occasions or for seasoned drinkers. These are best paired with Indian cuisine, American cuisine, sharp cheddar, and parmesan cheese. Examples include the American IPA, Imperial or Double IPA, and English IPA.

7. Porters
Porters are dark-colored beers that feature chocolatey flavors with notes of coffee and caramel. The alcohol content on Porters can sit around 5-12% which is on the medium to the high side, so this is not advisable for beginners, especially if they aren't the adventurous type. These pair well with American cuisine, English cuisine, barbecue, asiago cheese, and fontina cheese. Examples include the American Imperial Porter, English Brown Porter, and Robust Porter.

8. Stouts
Stouts, similar to Porters, are dark beers but with flavors more close to coffee than chocolate. These types of beers typically carry mid to high alcohol content. Stouts can appear very intimidating especially with its very dark color, but for the adventurous types who want beers to feel like coffee, this is perfect. These are usually served in smaller bottles due to its strong flavor and alcohol content, and pairs well with heavy foods, shellfish, aged cheddar, or burgers. Examples include the American Stout, American Imperial Stout, Oatmeal Stout, Milk Stout, and Irish Dry Stout.

9. Belgian-style Ales
Belgian beers are best known for their sweet and fruity flavors with notes of spices and feature a high alcohol content. This type of beer doesn't appear strong since it has a pale golden color and low bitterness, but one must be careful of drinking this too much as it could be dangerous after a couple of pints. The alcohol content of these sits around 4-15% depending on the type. These are best paired with Smoked meats, goose, Indian and Asian cuisine, or bleu cheese. Examples include the Belgian Pale Ale, Dubbel, Tripel, Quadrupel, Strong Dark Ale, and Saison.

10. Wheat Beers
As the name suggests, wheat beers use wheat as their malt. These are usually light in color and alcohol content, with tangy and fruity flavors. These are great for beginners and are very easy to drink with the alcohol content sitting around 3-5%. Wheat beers pair well with Mexican food, seafood, soft cheeses, or poultry. Examples include the American Pale Wheat, Belgian Witbier, Berliner Weisse, Dunkelweizen, and Hefeweizen.

11. Wild & Sour Ales
Wild or sour ales feature very low alcohol content which is perfect for beginners and boasts unique sour flavors with notes of tart that come from bacteria in the brew mash. These pair well with fruits and strong cheeses and examples include the American Sour, Belgian Fruit Lambic, Flanders Red Ale, and Belgian Gueuze. These cover the types of beers all over the world. There are also specialty beers, which could be any type or style of beer, but with a distinct ingredient added in like honey or pumpkin, depending on the brewer.

As you read above, beers come in various different styles and forms. But what makes a beer distinct from all the rest can be quantified with these characteristics:

1. Appearance
This could make or break a beer no matter how meticulously it was brewed, so making sure that you are presented with an inviting glass is a must. What also can be seen upon seeing the beer is the head, lacing, color, and clarity of the drink itself.

2. Aroma
The aroma is the distinct smell of the beer. There are fruity, floral, vegetal, spicy, and malty aromas that differ from beer to beer. Some people don't taste the beer at all once they smell it and don't like the aroma, especially craft beer connoisseurs.

3. Flavor and Mouthfeel
This is straightforward. Different beers have different tastes and textures inside the mouth, some more appealing than others. Do note however that if a beer tastes sour, it could be contaminated with bacteria unintentionally, or it was made that way with clean bacteria. In general, people don't drink beer only for the flavor, as most beers taste bitter, but the whole mouthfeel comes into play. A cheap cold beer will almost always be better to drink on a hot summer day than an expensive stale beer, so the right temperature also comes into play.

4. Alcohol Content
The common misconception about beer is that the more bitter or dark the beer is, the higher the alcohol content it has. This is not true, as some pale beers have very high alcohol content without having a bitter taste. So choosing the right alcohol content in combination with the flavor of the beer is a must.
