BEER WAS A SAFE ALTERNATIVE TO WATER; CURRENCY OF TENDER; A SACRED OFFERING TO GODS….. AND ALWAYS A SOCIAL DRINK!
Beer was probably discovered independently by many ancient cultures – Mesopotamia (region between the Tigris and Euphrates rivers, in what is known today as Iraq) (6000 BC); Egypt (5000 BC); Nubia, Africa (4000 BC) have the earliest records of brewing of Beer. A Beer drinking scene carved on a 6000-year-old Mesopotamian clay tablet is the earliest known evidence of Beer. Ancient Mesopotamian Beer was a sweet, thick brew made from malted barley, dates and honey. Because it was unfiltered, people used straws to penetrate the layer of solids that floated on top of the Beer. The most detailed painting of ancient Egyptian brewing scenes are on an Old Kingdom wall in the tomb of Ti, a high official in the pharaoh’s court, who was buried in the royal city of Saqqara. It is from these ancient lands, barley cultivation and brewing of beer spread to Europe and established itself as a vital social and refreshing drink!
The earliest known brewers of beer were women.
The earliest known usage of Hops – the female flowers of the vine Humulus lupulus in brewing was just about 1200 years ago. Hops were used for its excellent preservative characters. The bitterness and aroma that hops impart in Beer was incidental, at that time. However, with the progress in preservation technologies, hops are currently used for their aromatic and bittering properties. Hop harvesting is a huge social event in Europe, linked with the migrating families all across Europe.
