Notes:
The sweetness scale is dry, medium dry, medium sweet and sweet.
A typical barrel of wine is 130 lbs empty and 600 lbs full, containing 300 bottles.
All beer is either lager or ale, defined by the type of yeast and temperature used in brewing. Ales are brewed with top-fermenting yeast which allows for rapid fermentation at warmer temperatures. Lagers are brewed with bottom-fermenting yeast which ferments more slowly and at colder temperatures.
