Profile: Dave Bonta

I’m a writer, editor, and web publisher from the Appalachian Mountains of central Pennsylvania. I aspire to be a good minor poet and a great reader. These days I guess I’m most widely known as the curator of Moving Poems, a daily compendium of poetry videos from around the web.
I live in Plummer’s Hollow, Pennsylvania, part of the Juniata drainage, Chesapeake Bay watershed. I’m on the board of the Juniata Valley Audubon Society, based in Altoona, PA., despite the fact that I am not a real birdwatcher.

What is Beer?

Though “beer” and its cognates or derivatives in many other languages have come to refer rather narrowly to northern European beverages fermented from malted grains (barley, wheat, rye), among anthropologists it is used much more widely for any beverage where the majority of the alcohol derives from a grain or starchy vegetable. Wine-making involves fermenting sugars that are already present in fruit; brewing is a more complex art in which starches must first be converted to sugars and then fermented, with or without first sprouting (malting) them.
As with all things cultural, though, there’s still plenty of room for fuzziness.
