History of Beer

Beer has been around for centuries and is one of the oldest drinks in the world. It is believed that beer was first brewed in Ancient Egypt and  Mesopotamia, over 4,000 years ago. Since then, it has become a popular drink all over the world and there are many different types of beer available today. 

Beer is made from four basic ingredients: water, malt, hops, and yeast. The brewing process begins with the malt being crushed and mixed with hot water to create a sweet liquid called wort. Hops are then added to the wort to give beer its bitterness. Yeast is then added to ferment the sugars in the wort into alcohol. Beer can be either light or dark in colour, depending on the type of malt used during brewing. 

There are many different types of beer available today, from light lagers to dark stouts. Whether you’re looking for a refreshing light brew or a hearty dark stout, there’s a beer out there that’s perfect for you! Let us look at some of the popular beers in Kenya:
