Re: Beer Or Lager?
Lager is Beer.... D'oh!
Beer used to be a replacement for bread many many moons ago and it used to be composed of malt and herbs brewed in a pot. It was like a soup with no alcohol and was made daily. Recently an ancient egyption recipe for beer was discovered making it one of our oldest drinks. It was a bunch of **** head monks
who mixed it with hops for flavour (sweeter) but discovered the hops also preserved it. The brits preferred to brew it without hops (and still do) along with the Irish preferring the darker colour and bitter flavour. It was in the late 1800's however that the English (a London based brewery) brought over a remarkable chap called Luis Pasteur (Penicillin) who showed them how to 'pasteurise' their beer so that it would not go off (they were loosing about a 3rd of all production before then). Modern day Lager has a brewery in Pilsen to thank for its light amber colour (Pilsener). There has been no looking back since!
And then came Homer Simpson and Duff!!!!!!!
