Cool piece on the history of beer making and its origins from PopularScience.
As a species, we’re big fans of beer. We’ve been brewing beer for thousands of years, with different forms and recipes in regions around the world.
In a paper published today in PNAS researchers describe the first reported evidence that beer making in China happened as early as 5,000 years ago, or around 3,400 BC.
Beer doesn’t keep very long under normal conditions. Even shipwrecked beer, kept at rather consistent temperatures for 170 years can’t survive for long, so it’s not like the archeologists found a drinkable brew buried in the dirt.
