Because the hiragana ends with an う sound, you know this word is a verb. The kanji itself means destroy so the verb vocab version is to be destroyed. You know you're not destroying things because of the beer (びる). You'd never destroy beer... but someone else might. Grrr.

"THE HORROR!" (ほろ) you cry, as your beer is about to be destroyed.
If the earth is going to be destroyed, why should I resist eating bacon?
