Beach at Beer
This article is about Beer, a town in England. See alcoholic beverages for the beverage.

Beer is a town in Devon about 25 miles from Exeter. The name comes not from the alcoholic beverage but from the old English word bearu, meaning forest. The town rings a small cove with a big beach, with no harbor to speak of. Boats are pulled up onto the beach.
