The Great Popularity Of Beer

By Robin Saunders

Beer has always been popular, but perhaps today it is even more popular than it ever has been before. One reason for this is the abundance of microbreweries that have opened up in the past few decades, producing great, tasty beers. Another reason is that it’s easy to get started with home brewing, and producing your own great beers from home. Beer can go with anything, from a hot summer day, to a cool, brisk evening, and can be matched with all types of foods and occasions.

Beer has seemingly been around forever, but in truth it’s been around for at least 7,000 years. All across the world there are only two beverages of any kind that are drunk more than beer, and that’s water and tea. Beer has been a part of human society as long as bread and agriculture, and it’s been a part of important religious ceremonies and occasions, political celebrations and gestures and everything else. It also has been known to have some medicinal applications and modern science agrees with these claims.

The benefits to drinking beer are actually pretty substantial, but it’s still important you drink it only in moderation to see the positive results. Beer can help prevent some forms of cancer because of the flavonoids, a type of antioxidant, which can help to specifically reduce the risk for hormone related cancers and other ailments as well. Beer can also work to help your body utilize calcium more efficiently, and provides you with some important minerals and other nutrients.

Of course, it is very important for you to not forget that the key word here is moderation, and drinking more than you’re supposed to will of course have negative effects on your body. From damaging your liver and your brain functioning to simply putting on weight, beer can be harmful if you drink too much. A solid, moderate consumption level is two beers per day for a man, and one for a woman. Be social and enjoy a few drinks with a friend, but don’t overdo and don’t do it in excess all of the time. Then you’ll enjoy yourself, see the benefits and prevent any negative side effects as well.

One of the reasons why beer is so popular is that there are so many different varieties of beer to choose from. There are lagers, and ales, light colors, dark colors, and you can get reduced calorie beer, and for people who like the taste without the alcohol, there is even beer that has no alcohol at all. There are an abundance of different flavors to choose from, especially when it comes to micro brews. There are also many places where you can go on beer tasting tours, just like wine tasting. Microbreweries are especially fun for people who want something different than the mainstream commercial brands.

Look online and you can find all you need in terms of where the best microbreweries are, and even how to get started with home brewing for yourself. The National Homebrewers Association has some wonderful information ranging from which states allow you to brew your own beer to helpful hints for getting started for yourself.
