You might  anytime have heard that whiskey makes you frisky, and so beer makes you queer might be true as well. The major differences between beer and whiskey are the percentage of alcohol, price, color, taste , appearance , bottles, corks and labels.

Whiskey, in comparison with beer, is dangerous to one’s health and can cause heart conditions, whereas according to some doctors beer has a heart protecting compound in it,  which is called flavonoids. But they both should be used in moderation.

 Whiskey and beer are both made from starchy grains, such as wheat, barley, rye, millet, oats and corn. For example, single malt whiskey is made from barley and distilled at a single distillery, whereas bourbon or American whiskey is prepared by fifty one percent corn, besides other ingredients.

Whiskey is clear in color when it is distilled and before  stored in wooden casks for the aging process. Here it gets its brown color. Many manufacturers of cheaper brands add caramel or molasses to get the artificial brown color to it.

Beer, it not only contains alcohol, but is also composed of significant nutrients – potassium, biotin, B vitamins etc. The ingredients of beer are undergoing scientific evaluations to evaluate the number of health benefits and risks involved when drinking beer. Whiskey is known to act as a blood thinner, and differs in quality, base product and amount of alcohol.
