Beer Wiki


Beer is one of the oldest beverages, possibly dating back to the 5th millennium BC, and recorded in the written history of ancient Egypt and Mesopotamia. The earliest known chemical evidence of beer dates back to around 3500-3100 BC

One if these early references is seen in 4,000 year old Chinese clay tablets noting brewing of a beer called “kui” some 5000 years ago. The tablet from Mesopotamia indicates that brewing was a highly respected profession there – and the master brewers were women.

Brewing is almost certainly the most ancient manufacturing art known to man, and is probably as old as agriculture itself. Beer is also as old as bread – in fact it is probable that either beer or bread may have been a by-product of the other.
