Origin and Use 

When it comes to beer, many times we only care if it’s cold or if it’s left in the fridge. But the truth is that we are facing one of the most consumed drinks in the world and that, moreover, has a long story to tell, in addition to other equally interesting and even refreshing issues, such as its mixtures.


With the history of beer it happens as with many other drinks that have been with us for a long time. Its origin is lost in the beginning of time and it is not clear when it began to be elaborated. The first recipe that proves the existence of beer dates back to no less than 3,300 BC and gives the Sumerians its invention. At that time, a very spicy barley bread was made that was fermented in jars of water to form the must and what would later become the beer itself.

Later, it would be the Egyptians who perfected the most traditional formula, thus giving rise to different products and new intensities for beer. In fact, at the time of Ramses II no less than 4 million liters were produced per year, which shows the importance and acceptance of the drink. Something similar happened with barley, which was even used as currency by the Egyptians.

At the time of Greece, beer would also have considerable importance, although with the fall of the empire and the arrival of the Romans, great lovers of wine, beer would be reduced to a drink of barbarians. It would not be until the Middle Ages, around the 10th and 11th centuries, the time when beer would regain its place. A boom mainly due to the work of the guilds and the good work of the convents. It was precisely in these convents that Lager beer would be discovered back in the 16th century, while Pilsen beer would not be discovered until 1842. The special malting process at a controlled temperature was the key to obtaining a golden, high-quality beer.

Since then and to this day, there are not many news. On the one hand, the arrival of the industrial revolution would also affect beer, making this drink one of the most popular and making it easier to enjoy a good and cheap beer. Interestingly, in our times we are experiencing a return to these more traditional trends, with the rise of craft beers or the appearance of new variants such as IPA or India Pale Ale, among others. So the future seems to have a lot to tell us.


Despite what it may seem, the truth is that beer is a suitable product when making mixtures. In fact, if there is a typical Spanish drink, it is the clear one, in which beer and soft drink are combined, either soda or lemon soda, to give it a special touch. Precisely this combination can be found in almost any comparison of beers that we have at hand, since it is marketed already prepared under various brands.

If we already enter the world of cocktails, the truth is that there are some interesting combinations. One of them is the Black Velvet, in which Guiness-type beer is mixed with sparkling wine in a glass of champagne. The result is a drink that is interesting to look at and surprising to taste. The same goes for “watermelon beer”, in which beer is mixed with the pulp of a watermelon, and sugar and maraschino or cherry liqueur can also be added.

However, Mexico is the land that knows the most about mixing beers. This is where the famous mix of beer with tequila comes from, which today we can find already prepared in the market. The Michelada also arose there, in which salt, piquín chili powder, ice, valentina sauce, tabasco, Worcestershire sauce, gravy and any beer are mixed. The result is certainly surprising.


Considering how much a good beer costs, it pays to know how to store it properly. For traditional beers, it is enough to keep them in a cool place and away from sunlight. In the case of craft beers, it is advisable to take some additional precautions, such as keeping the beers always horizontal, at temperatures below 15 degrees and in a particularly dark area, since the sun harms them more than industrial beers. In addition, it is convenient that the humidity of the room or the closet is around 50 to 70%, for optimal conservation.

Nutritional value

Although it is something that is not always reflected in any guide to buying the best beer, the truth is that the nutritional values ​​of this drink are quite interesting. A third of beer gives us 142 calories, mainly from the carbohydrates it contains. In addition, it has 1.5 grams of protein and almost 90% of its composition is water, as the base of the drink. So it’s a good way to hydrate with a touch of flavor.

drink responsibly

So that you drink responsibly, we leave you a couple of facts about beer. The first of them is its graduation, which is variable depending on the type of beer and its preparation. However, we are talking about a low-proof drink, which ranges from 2.5 to 15 degrees, although it is normal for it to range between 4 and 8 degrees. This means that in order not to test positive in a control, no more than two thirds should be drunk, in the case of men, nor more than one in that of women. As an alternative, we always have non-alcoholic beer or 0.0.
