Beer is brewed by the saccharification of starch and fermentation of the resulting sugar. The starch is mostly derived from malted cereal grains (malted barley and malted wheat). The beer is then flavored with hops. This adds the bitterness and it also acts as a natural preservative. Sometimes other flavorings are added such as herbs or fruits. Beer comes in many types, tastes and flavors. Do you want to try some shooters with beer? Try the Flaming Dr. Pepper Shot or the Submarino, a nice cocktail with beer with a shooter in it. Find here some of the best cocktail recipes made with beer as one of the cocktail ingredients. Cheers!
