Powdered beer – level 1

28-03-2023 15:00

A German company makes something new. Their product is powdered beer.

Powdered beer comes in powder. It is a dry substance. When you mix it with water, you make beer. Exporting beer makes a lot of CO2 emissions. The company says that powdered beer reduces the emissions for Germany by 3 to 5%.

The company can make lager, pilsner, or dark beer. Now, the company is looking for a partner to start production. It hopes that the product will be ready by the end of 2023. The company will sell powdered beer to breweries. They will mix the powder with water and fill the bottles.

Difficult words: export (to send a product to another country and sell it there), lager (a beer brewed slowly), pilsner (a lager beer with a strong flavor).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
