Many people like to drink the beer, but do you know the history of beer?

Today we will know about it follow the DYM Brewing Solution Team together.

Beer is made by fermenting grains. In 4000 BC, 16 kinds of beer were made from barley, wheat and honey in Mesopotamia.

Over 1300 BC, beer was highly developed in Egypt as a state-run industry. There is also an important raw material in beer, that is, bittering agent. Although it has been used for a long time, the first use of hops as a bittering agent was in 168 AD. Greece also learned how to brew beer from Egypt, and beer became popular in Greece. The brewing technology of beer was also introduced to Western Europe by Greece.

Before the Middle Ages, beer brewing was still carried out by women in the family. However, due to the high demand, beer brewing in the Middle Ages has shifted from domestic production to rural workshops and monasteries. Later, German beer brewers formed an alliance to sell German beer abroad. In the 17th and 18th centuries, the rise of the German beer industry once made the wine industry very sluggish.

In the early 19th century, British beer production was industrialized on a large scale, and the annual output could reach 20ML. Such large-scale industrial production also has a greater demand forbeer brewing equipment.

In the middle of the 19th century, among many beers, the following fermentation method began to emerge in Bavaria, Germany. Due to the excellent taste of the beer brewed under this method, this method has gradually become popular throughout the country.

In the New World of America, beer technology was brought by Dutch and British Protestants in the early 17th century, and the original beer factory was established in Massachusetts in 1637. Soon, the rapid development of beer as a modern industry made the United States the beer-producing country that surpassed Germany.
