Beer was brewed as early as 12,000 years ago.

And all these years later, we’re still buzzing. Recent archaeological digs in the eastern Mediterranean have turned up what appear to be primitive brewing tools, suggesting that people were sampling fermented fruit (or grain) as far back as the Epipaleolithic era. However, there is debate over whether grain was used for making beer before it was used for making bread. “I think it was being used for beer or, more appropriately, for feasting,” says archaeologist Brian Hayden, who has contributed to the knowledge in support of this theory. “Feasts were a means of organizing people, similar to a democratic congress. The addition of beer made them a much more effective tool.” Apparently, some things never change.
