Social context
Quite a lot of social activities and traditions are greatly
associated with drinking beer, such as playing cards,darts, or other games. We won’t get into on the other fun beer drinking games right now. The consumption of beer in excess and isolation may be due to the fact that people tend to try
drinking away their problems, while drinking in
excess at parties or social gatherings may be associated with binge drinking.

Around the world
All around the world, beer is consumed. There are
several breweries in the Middle East countries as
well, such as Syria and Iraq. There is also
breweries in African countries and other remote
countries far away as Mongolia as well.

Glassware serving
Getting the appropriate beer glass is considered
desirable by some consumers. There are some drinkers of beer that may sometimes drink out of the bottle or can, At the same time others maychoose to drink their beer out of a glass. Drinking from a bottle picks up aromas by the nose, so if a drinker wishes to appreciate the aromas of beer, the beer is first poured into a glass,mug, or stein.

Comparable to wine, for some types of beer there are specialized styles of glasses, with some breweries producing glassware intended for their own styles
of beer.

The conditions for serving beer have a big influence
on a drinker’s experiences. An important factor when drinking is the temperature, as colder
temperatures will start to inhibit the chemical
senses of the tongue and throat, which will narrow
down the flavor profile of beer, allow certain
lagers to release their crispness.

The process of pouring will have an influence on the presentation of beer. The rate of flow from the
tap, the way the glass is tilted, and position of the pour into the glass will all affect the outcome, such as longevity of the head and size and the turbulence of the bar as the carbonation starts to be released.

The more heavily carbonated beers such as German pilseners will need settling time before they are served, although the remaining yeast at the bottom will be served by many of them to retain the extra color and flavors.

Beer rating
The rating of beer is a craze that combines the
enjoyment of drinking beer with the hobby of collecting it. Those that drink beer sometimes tend to record their scores and opinions on various internet websites.

This is a worldwide activity, as people in the United States will swap bottles of beer with those
living in New Zealand and Russia. The scores may then be combined together to create lists of the
most favorite beers in each country and also for those those throughout the world.

There you have it, hope you enjoy that next beer with a little more knowledge on one of my favorite subjects.
