Beer is a beverage that plays a role in saving the residents of the city of Bavaria due to conditions that make the quality of the water dirty and unfit to drink. In those days the people preferred to drink beer rather than drink normal water because the whole city was infected with a cholera outbreak. And at that time beer is safer for consumption because bacteria from contaminated water are already dead during the fermentation process. That’s why the process of brewing goes on and is also part of the celebration of the biggest festival that is well known throughout the world, Octoberfest.
