Long before beer became a pub favorite, it gave our nomadic ancestors fuel for survival. It was a safer source of hydration than water, provided ample nutrition, and even helped early humans make the transition from a nomadic lifestyle to village life. Evidence of brewing dates back to more than 14,000 years ago, and while we may not appreciate the taste of the ancient version, our ancestors brewed it and celebrated it much like we do today.
