The Beer Shots

Welcome to the Molecular Expressions BeerShots Website featuring photomicrographs (photographs taken through an optical microscope) of the World's most famous beers. We have arranged the beer images by country. Technical Details - A discussion of the major aspects involved and techniques employed in photographing samples of beer through the microscope. The links to individual beers lead to a page describing the beer with a 30-90 Kbyte JPEG image of that beer. The links to countries lead to a brief description of beer-brewing in that country and thumbnail 5-7 Kbyte JPEG images of the different beers from that country. Clicking on a thumbnail image or the link beside it will lead to the page for that beer. Enjoy! If you find these images interesting then you might like to explore our new Beershots Screen Saver for Windows.
