One of the most amazing organisms that thrives on this green earth of ours is known as yeast, a eukaryotic microorganism that belongs to the fungus kingdom.
This organism is one of the most resilient and adaptive creatures known to man.
It just so happens that if you plop it into a room temperature vat of malt, wheat, barley and/or hops, it starts to eat it and produce carbon dioxide. If you seal that vat, cutting off the supply of oxygen, it won’t mind much. It will still produce CO2, but in the newly anaerobic environment, it will start to produce a different compound known as ethanol. We humans have another word for ethanol: booze.
What has just been described in a simplified manner is the amazing process of making beer. Beer is awesome; beer is amazing; beer is one of the most excellent creations ever engineered by man. In the past, it has been used when clean water wasn’t available, it has been cited as proof of god by one notable beer-loving Founding Father, and has been used by countless individuals to bring about great vibes and good times.
It doesn’t matter what beer you like the most, and it doesn’t matter what beer tattoo you get. Popular versions range between jugs, pint glasses, cans, bottles, hops, logos, bubbles, foam and beyond. A beer tattoo is a way of saying yes to life. Just about everyone can agree on beer; it brings people together.
