Beer can be called many things and be created from many different ingredients. One thing is easy to see, you either like beer or you don't. This beverage can be an acquired taste, some enjoy it while others avoid it, and drinking too much can cause a number of problems. Beer should be enjoyed in moderation, and drinking to drown your sorrows is never a good idea. A cold beer on a hot day or with a slice of pizza can be heavenly to many people though.
