The genes that make up lager yeast differ by 50%
from those of ale yeast - that's more than the difference
between a human and an elephant.
Lager was invented hundreds of years ago
and was originally dark in colour.
The final entry in some English dictionaries is Zymurgy.
This is the branch of chemistry which relates to fermentation,
so beer, as always, has the last word.
At Oktoberfest visitors consume 119,000 sausages,
116 roast oxen and 57 roast calves, washed down by
7.1 million litres of beer. That's enough beer to fill
two and a half Olympic-size swimming pools!
When hops were first used in brewing - in 14th century
Germany and Holland - they were added
as a preservative, not for flavour.
The biggest-selling beer in the world is
Snow Beer, brewed and only available in China.
It sells 21,542,000,000 pints per annum.
In sharp contrast to WW1, beer was never
rationed during WW2 - Churchill believed
beer was good for morale.
Hops, used to flavour beer, are closely related
to stinging nettles and cannabis.
