Hard as it seems to believe, scientists seem to think it’s true!

While I was researching the usual and customary sites for information on beer, I stumbled upon this interesting article in Live Science. While you and I already know some of the more commonly understood facts about beer, there were some surprising and interesting tidbits that makes you take pause, and reflect on that lovely beverage we call beer. Also, in Science Daily News, another article caught my eye: a 10 million year love affair with alcohol! Seems that our ancestors took to the ground from the trees to exploit the fallen fruits that had started turning rancid with fermentation. While I’m sure that the researchers were right that the sweeter fruit tasted better, but we did eventually leave the arboreal canopy for good. So in the long run, alcohol won out and all the rest is history.
