Beer is known as the fermented, alcoholic product of the combination of malt, hops, water, and yeast. Drinking beer has been part of people’s lives for many years. Today, it is always part of celebrations, watching movies, hanging out with friends, and simply relaxing at home. When you go to grocery stores and bars, you will be able to see various types, styles, and brands of beer. Some of them are in bottles, while some are sold in cans. If you love to drink beer, have you ever wondered about its origins and evolution?
Like wine, beer also has a long history. In fact, it is longer than we will ever be able to trace. The history of beer is quite literally the history of human civilization. In its history alone, there are already many things to know about beer. While the exact date or time for the first chug or keg stand is not known, what we know is that beer, just like bread, was developed in farm-based, agrarian societies where people had enough grain and time for fermentation. Another thing we know is that ancient men loved beer as much, if not more than we do.
