Beer is produced by the brewing and fermentation of starches, mainly derived from grains. Most beer is flavoured with hops, which add bitterness and act as a natural preservative, though other flavourings such as herbs or fruit may occasionally be included.

Beers are commonly categorized into two main types: lagers and ales. The strength of beer is usually around 4% to 6% alcohol by volume (abv.), although it varies widely and up to 20% alcohol by volume has been reported.
