Deutsch: Bier
Beer is an alcoholic beverage produced by the saccharification of starch and fermentation of the resulting sugar. The starch and saccharification enzymes are often derived from malted cereal grains, most commonly malted barley and malted wheat. Most beer is also flavoured with hops, which add bitterness and act as a natural preservative, though other flavourings such as herbs or fruit may occasionally be included. The preparation of beer is called brewing. Beer is the world's most widely consumed alcoholic beverage, and is the third-most popular drink overall, after water and tea.

In the food context, beer is an alcoholic beverage made from fermented grains, typically barley, hops, yeast, and water. It is one of the oldest and most widely consumed alcoholic beverages in the world. Here are some examples of different types of beer:

  3. Stout: A dark, rich beer made from roasted barley, with a creamy head and a slightly sweet taste.

  4. Wheat beer: A beer made with a high proportion of wheat, resulting in a lighter, fruity taste.
