Q. How the bacterias are produced?

A. The Bacteria are a large group of unicellular microorganisms. Typically a few micrometres in length, bacteria have a wide range of shapes, ranging from spheres to rods and spirals. (The name comes from the Greek bakterion, meaning small staff.) Bacteria are ubiquitous in every habitat on Earth, growing in soil, acidic hot springs, radioactive waste,[2] water, and deep in the Earth's crust, as well as in organic matter and the live bodies of plants and animals. There are typically 40 million bacterial cells in a gram of soil and a million bacterial cells in a millilitre of fresh water; in all, there are approximately five nonillion (5×1030) bacteria on Earth,[3] forming much of the world's biomass.[4] Bacteria are vital in recycling nutrients, with many important steps in nutrient cycles depending on these organisms, such as the fixation of nitrogen from the atmosphere and putrefaction. Hope this helps.

Q. how do you produce alcohol drinks? why does it has such an effect on the senses? is it like drugs?

A. Ethanol (the scientific name for alcohol) is a sort of sugar that in a digestive process of some fungus or bacteria of glucose is made as Ethanol. This is why if you put fruits in certain condition they'll create alcohol after a while. It is considered a drug and the body see it as poison (from a good reason..) and try to get rid of it. But as long as you don't over do it and just drink a couple of beers occasionally – it shouldn't be a problem.
