Beer is probably the most loved alcoholic beverage in the world, but not every beer drinker knows enough about it's history. Beer has been around for centuries, so to ascertain its exact date and manner of origin is not possible, but we can get a good idea of the same by analyzing the different cultures that have brewed bee, and what this implies.

According most experts, beer can be traced back to ancient African tribes, when they were in their prime, 6,000 years ago. The art of beer brewing can be even older, but the earliest indicators show that beer was prevalent at least 6,000 years ago. The act of fermenting the beer and brewing it is said to have occurred by accident when a piece of bread got wet and was then left to become a watery pulp.

The Babylonians Role in the History of Beer Making

When the Sumerian empire fell, the Babylonians became the masters of the land and the recipe for how to brew beer was passed down to them.This beer was traded with the Egyptians and it soon spread to their culture as well. In fact, it spread to such an extent that Egyptians started distributing it to all the people based on a quota which was determined by the profession of each person.

Even the Chinese and Japanese eventually got their hands on beer and started brewing their own version with rice. This led to the rise of many types of beer all around the world. Beer was used to cure illnesses. The history of beer is full of great reverence to the beverage, before people realized the concept of ...being drunk.

The Romans and the Greeks in Beer History

When the Romans and the Greeks arrived on the scene, they too could not resist the temptation of beer. Only the people who could not afford wine drank beer, but its alcoholic and effect was viewed with great reverence as it was supposed to provide the drinker divine powers.

As time went on, beer became more and more popular and it has been mentioned in many books that have been passed down. Fermentation techniques improved, and the bitterness in taste slowly subsided. More foam started to appear in the various brands of beer, and people started using it as a tool for trade and exchanges. Hop was slowly introduced in the fermentation process, and then yeast. This increased the alcohol content of beer, and also helped purify it, which further enhanced the taste.

The Germans then mastered the art of fermentation and started brewing the beer in the mountains where the low temperatures would help get rid of impurities and thus enhance the taste and the alcohol content.
