Can someone please tell me which mishnah in tractate Pesachim talks about the subject of the different beers regarding the laws of chametz?

You could make this question more answerable and valuable by editing in information about where you've heard of such a mishna and why you want to find it. – Isaac Moses Mar 18 '14 at 21:23
I read it in the past and I would like to re-learn it – David Feigen Mar 18 '14 at 22:30

The Mishnah is Pesachim 3:1, or in the Bavli, page 42a

And as the commentaries explain, the Talmud discussed beer that was either all date/fig (kosher for Passover!), or mostly date/fig with some grain (don't eat it, debatable if you're allowed to own it). Today's beer is all grain and is completely chametz. – Shalom Mar 19 '14 at 9:03
