Neolithic open bar

Hello everyone,

Here is an interesting article I read today about a journey that started with a fermented fruit that ended with triple martini.

Alcohol's Neolithic Origins: Brewing Up a Civilization - SPIEGEL ONLINE - News - International

Just a taste :):
Archaeologists have long pondered the question of which came first, bread or beer. McGovern surmises that these prehistoric humans didn't initially have the ability to master the very complicated process of brewing beer. However, they were even more incapable of baking bread, for which wild grains are extremely unsuitable.
"In Iran of all countries, where alcohol consumption is now punishable by whipping, the American scientist found vessels containing the first evidence of prehistoric beer."

Oh the irony of the above statement! :). Incidentally in Britain and Ireland long before drinking water was safe for consumption people used to drink beer like water as it was safer and less toxic from germs.
