From How to Buy Great Wine for Under $20:

It is amazing how many types of wine there are in the world. There are thousands of varieties produced at innumerable locations around the globe. Add that to the fact each can be blended to form something all together different. It becomes difficult to choose the right wine for yourself. How can anyone possibly figure it all out?

If you have no limit on what you can spend, buying good wine is relatively easy. But you, like most of us, may not be able to buy extremely expensive wines on a regular basis.

On the other hand, there is plenty of cheap wine out there; you could easily be frugal and purchase the cheapest wine on the shelf. But there will be times when this results in a dull, if not disagreeable, experience.

Worse, you could end up with something utterly undrinkable.

From A Beginner’s Guide to IPA Beers:

The story of IPA beer starts, as most tales of good beer usually do, in a British pub. The term “India Pale Ale” is a bit misleading because the beer is not brewed in India, but rather originates in Britain previously destined for the Indian marketplace.

IPA beers originated as “October ales,” named so because they were typically brewed during that month to accompany British sailors on their trips to the East Indies. The long journey proved problematic for darker beers; although often preferred by the British public, these beers would spoil by the end of the journey. The creation of the IPA solved the challenges of traveling for months by boat through extreme temperatures.

IPAs in particular incorporate more hops, which contribute to the bitter, flowery, or citrusy flavors. The term “hops” refers to the flower of a particular vine, a quintessential aspect of beer-making. Historically, the production of IPA used hops to help stabilize beer on its journey to the Indies.

Hops act as a natural preservative, so the beer would travel better with more hops during the days before modern refrigeration techniques. IPAs eventually gained popularity in Britain and other parts of the world (the American Pale Ale is a variation using American hops) as brewers served the beer in pubs, and consumers began to like and even prefer the flavor.
