I'd suggest reading How to Brew - By John Palmer - I imagine that will clear up a lot of your confusion.

Beer is normally made from malted barley with hops added for bitternes.

The Barley is grown and then after it is harvested it is dampened and warmed to convert it to malted barley.

Warm water is then added and the liquid drawn off.
Hops are added.

Yeast is then added to make the beer.

If you read the online book in the first response you got, you'd have your answer. Orfy also explained it well. Even googling the words hops and barley would answer your question.

You really need to read How to Brew and understand the basics before you even think about brewing.

Barley and hops are 2 very different plants.

In a very "general" way, barley is very close to wheat.

Hops are a vine, somewhat.

yeah do some more research guy... that question can be answered by reading the most basic of homebrewing information. wikipedia i'm pretty sure has a basic homebrewing article that explains the gist of everything...but definitely read a book (like How to Brew, as mentioned and provided, or "The Complete Joy of Homebrewing" by Charles Papazian) and use google mayne....
