The divine drink

13 August 2015

Often referred to as liquid bread, beer is as old as the civilization. It is possible that mankind took a sip from this brew of fermented grain sooner than from wine. Do you know where its name come from?

The name
The word ‘beer’ comes from the Latin word ‘bibere’ meaning ‘to drink.’

Pasteur
1876, Pasteur unraveled the secrets of yeast in the fermentation process, and he also developed pasteurization to stabilize beers 22 years before the process was applied to milk.

The beer prayer

Our lager,
Which art in barrels,
Hallowed be Thy drink,
Thy will be drunk,
At home as I am in the tavern.
Give us this day our foamy head,
And forgive us our spillages,
As we forgive those who spill against us,
And lead us not to incarceration,
But deliver us from hangovers,
For thine is the ale,
The bitter and the lager,
Forever and ever,
Barmen.
