History and Types of Beer
Much like wine, it is believed that beer’s history dates back to the beginning of civilization. The first beer in the world was brewed by the ancient Chinese around the year 7000 BCE, according to historians. However, the Mesopotamians were the first to use the process we recognize as brewing today.  Throughout history, various cultures have brewed their own unique beers, with many different names for them. Beer is believed to have first come to America in 1587 when the colonists in Virginia brewed ale using corn. Beer has become an multi-million dollar industry today with http://www.ancient.eu/article/223/

Types of Beer
With so many different names and brands out there, it can be difficult to understand the types of beer out there. It comes down to two types: Ales and lagers. So what’s the difference? Temperature. Ales are fermented at much higher temperatures, 65-75 degrees, than lagers. Lagers are fermented at cooler temperatures, ranging from 46 to 55 degrees. The other difference is the form and type of yeast applied during the fermentation process. Typically, an ale will use yeast that ferments at the top, found floating on the surface for the first few days before it settles. Lagers, however, use yeast at the bottom, which settles and does not float to the top. Read a complete list of lagers and ales at http://classyboozer.com/different-types-of-beer/

Aging and Collecting Beer

Beer lovers have started navigating the process of beer collecting. Experts say there are two types of beer that are the best to store: beers with a high alcohol content and beers made with a wild yeast. Alcohol acts as a preservative and will help keep beverages for an extended period of time. The wild yeasts often have more complex flavors that can take some time to blend into the beer. It is suggested to store beer in a similar atmosphere as wine –– in a cool, dark room that has the perfect balance of humidity and dryness.
