(Did you mean a Matthew B. Tepper fanzine?)
Bheer is the fannish spelling of beer. There is no difference in pronunciation.
Then too, there are those who regard Beer (or Bheer) as a minor fannish deity unto itself–making Bheer the one fan religion which has followers in the non-fan college fraternity community. Nonetheless, Berkeley fandom's Tower of Bheer Cans to the Moon was not just a fannish myth but both a religious icon or totem poll and a technological marvel. And note that, implication or no, the fannish ghods are fannish ghods (with an "h") and not fannish gods (without an "h").
|From Fancyclopedia 2 ca 1959|
|No less important to fannish than mundane drinking, this useful beverage is even given divine honors by the sect of Beeros and worshipped as either Beer or Bheer. (The latter substance is also used in celebrating certain mysteries of the Ghuist religion.) Roscoe approves of beer. True Beeros, however, believe that "Beer is the Only True Ghod", advancing in evidence the fact that given enough beer one wants nothing more. But scoffers point out that with money one can buy beer.|
