Now that you know the types of beer out there, here are three interesting facts about it. How much of a beer expert are you?

First fun fact: Do you know where the name “beer” comes from? Although there are different versions, it is said to have originated in Roman mythology. Ceres was the goddess of agriculture, harvest, and fertility. The Gauls, in honor of this goddess, decided to call their liquor “Cerevisa,” hence the name “beer” we know today.

Second fact, could you tell us the main ingredient of this beverage? The answer is easy: water. Yes, over 80% of beer is composed of water, so the taste of beer depends a lot on the quality of the water used. In fact, it is said that in the Middle Ages, where there was a shortage of drinking water, a very high percentage of the population drank beer instead of water because they believed that with alcohol, they ensured the drink was potable.

Third fun fact: beer and bread had the same composition originally; the difference was the amount of water added to the fermented cereal flour. It wasn’t until the 13th century that the flowers of a plant called hops were applied to beer brewing; until then, they were only used for medicinal purposes. Hops favored the bitter and refreshing flavor we know today.

And there you have it, beerfriend, we’ve only scratched the surface of this beer universe. From classic Lagers to bold and tangy Sours, there’s a beer style for every taste and occasion. So, the next time you visit Mercado de Tapineria, specifically our Bar&Kitchen, don’t be afraid to try something new and exciting. Are you up for discovering your beer style?
