Alus

Etymology[edit]

From Proto-Baltic *alu-, from Proto-Indo-European *h₂elut- (bitter). A minority view considers the Latvian and Lithuanian terms to be ultimately borrowings from Germanic, via Old Prussian. Cognates include Lithuanian alùs, Old Prussian alu (honey drink), Old East Slavic олъ (olŭ, strong drink), Bulgarian оловина (olovína, beer yeast), Slovene ôl (beer), Old English ealu, alu, English ale, Old Norse ǫl (beer; feast), Ancient Greek ἀλύδοιμος (alúdoimos, bitter).[1]
