Humans brewed beer over 13,000 years ago
Prehistoric humans had a thirst for craft beer and were brewing such beverages at least 5,000 years earlier than thought, say scientists who have found evidence of alcohol production in the Eastern Mediterranean. 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.
