How Old Is Beer?

Beer is as old as civilization. 4,000 years ago in Babylon the penalty for taverns overcharging beer drinkers was death.

Upon arrival at Plymouth Rock, the Mayflower's log reads, "Our victuals being much spent, especially our beer..."

In 1639, the headmaster of Harvard Nathaniel Eaton, got fired for (amongst other things) "failing to provide enough beer to students."

Moderate Drinkers Toast To Longevity

Sipping two or three glasses of beer, wine or cocktails per day helped older adults live longer than teetotalers in a study that confirmed the health benefits of moderate drinking.

A study of 1,824 adults aged 55 to 65 found that moderate and heavy drinkers were less likely to die than abstainers over a 20-year span, according to researchers at the University of Texas in Austin and Stanford University in Palo Alto, California. Moderate drinkers were defined as those who have one to fewer than three drinks daily, with heavy drinkers having three or more alcoholic beverages a day, according to the study in the journal Alcoholism: Clinical & Experimental Research. 1
