Beer: An alcoholic beverage made from the fermentation of fermentable sugars (usually from malted barley and cereal grains) and often flavored with hops to provide a bitter counterbalance to the residual malt sweetness.

With over 84 different categories of beer (number of categories judged at the Great American Beer Festival 2012) and growing, there is no shortage of flavor profiles available to savor. Simply put, out of all the alcoholic beverages available, beer is most accessible and diverse. From negligible alcohol content to 50% alcohol and above (from freeze distillation), and from pale straw effervescence to midnight black richness, there is a beer for every occasion.
