National Drink Beer Day
Beer has been brewed prior to written history. But ironically, the oldest known recipe set down by man appears to be one for brewing beer, found on stone tablets in Sumer, in southern Mesopotamia, the “fertile crescent” or “cradle of civilization” between the Tigris and Euphrates Rivers that includes modern Iraq, northeastern Syria, southeastern Turkey, and southwestern Iran.
Beer is the most frequently-consumed beverage in the world, after water and tea! Some scholars believe that it has been brewed since the sixth millennium B.C.E. By 4000 B.C.E., the Babylonians were brewing at least sixteen varieties of beer (when you see all of the different styles in this glossary, you won’t be surprised at that number). The Pharaohs of Egypt paid their workers with jugs of beer (later, the Romans would pay their legions in salt, leaving us with the phrase, “worth his salt” rather than “worth his beer”). Beer types—ale, pale ale, bock, pilsner, and lager.
