Beer is good. Beer makes you smart and happy and makes chicks dig you. Brewing beer yourself makes you a God among men.
Beer is many things to many people, but fundamentally it is a fermented beverage made from grain. In that way it is different from other fermented beverages, such as wine, which is made from fruit, mead, which is made from honey, or saki, which is made from rice. Through its evolution beer has taken many forms, and drawn its character from a variety of grains and adjuncts. For centuries its production was cloaked in mystery, brewed by priests, called a gift from the gods. Even yeast, before it was understood, was called "godisgood" in old english. But today, beer, in all of its wonderous variety, can be created by you. To do so is right here at your finger tips, and the secrets of its production, and ultimate enjoyment, await any and all who seek them out in these pages.
