Humans brewed beer over 13,000 years ago, claims new study
Their analysis confirmed that these mortars were used for brewing of wheat/barley, as well as for food storage. The Natufians at Raqefet Cave collected locally available plants, stored malted seeds, and made beer as a part of their rituals. They used bedrock mortars for pounding and cooking plant-foods, and for brewing wheat/barley-based beer, likely served in ritual feasts 13,000 years ago. The evidence of beer brewing at Raqefet Cave 13,000 years ago provides yet another example of the complex Natufian social and ritual realms.
