World Beer Day: Seven myths about the popular drink

International Beer Day is celebrated every first Friday of August, one of humanity’s oldest drinks and one of the most popular drinks in the Dominican Republic.

Beer is the favorite drink of thousands of people. However, many of its consumers disagree on how it should be served, at what temperature, or its effect on the body.

On this day, Dominican National Brewery (CND) brewmaster Felipe Felipe talks to reporters at Listin Diario to clarify the myths that have been woven around the drink for decades.

“Beer Makes You Fat”
Felipe assures that beer does not make you fat, but rather makes you more hungry due to its high levels of protein and starchy substances, nutrients for the body.

Clarifying the popular notion of “beer belly”, the teacher reiterated that beer does not cause people to increase body mass, but the food that accompanies Dominican drinks.

Referring to frying, he recommends striking a balance between the alcohol and the food you eat. In addition, he urged consumers to “learn to enjoy and feel the beer on the palate so they don’t have side effects.”

“must be served without foam”
False, beer served without froth goes into the stomach of the consumer and causes bloating in the person’s stomach.
Many are of the view that beer is doomed if it is served with foam, however, to experts, that beer foam is an important indicator of quality.
“Ideally, when serving it, it should foam between two or three fingers and be stable,” says Felipe.

“Ash” so cold
Whether due to the hot climate prevailing in the Dominican Republic or due to some personal taste, the truth is that most consumers prefer to drink extremely cold beer.

However, brewers recommend drinking it at a temperature between 5 and 9 °C, so that all the flavor and aromatic compounds of the drink can be appreciated on the palate.

“It is injurious to health”
According to Felipe, beer is a food that takes time to digest like any other. This product is made from natural grains that may be good for people’s health “if and only if taken with caution.”

“When a beer is frozen and then thawed, it is spoiled”
Containing water, alcohol, and electrolytes, when beer melts, it decomposes these spices. In order for it to return to its normal state, it must be protected from light and then mixed with one that is not frozen in order to achieve a balance of the properties it contains.

“The size and packaging of a beer affect its taste”
Many believe that in the content of beer that comes in containers of various sizes and materials (glass and can), different production methods are used that alter the original taste of the liquid. This theory was revealed by the brewer, who claimed that the beer is identical in any presentation.

“Dominican Bears and the United States Are Different”
According to Felipe, Dominican and American beer are one and the same. What he clarified is that the difference between beer is not in its qualities, but in the opportunity for consumption.

“There are no rules for drinking in the Dominican Republic; Dominicans drink while dancing, shopping in supermarkets or sitting in moderation. However, US citizens are limited to taking it home or to restaurants.”
