50 Foods #7: Beer

Origin: Sumer
Date: By 2000 BCE and most likely older
Type: Malted grains and water

Beer is the ultimate beverage whenever friends or family get together and many consumers around the world create excuses just to have one. It also arouses teenagers’ curiosity and one of the main causes of death at the wheel.

I’ve read about the fascinating history of beer a few years back while doing bartending research and it was pretty much interesting. Beer was first developed in the cities of Sumer, the southern region of Mesopotamia. The Egyptians picked up beer-drinking from the Sumerians and I recall from my reading that the workers who built the Great Pyramid of Giza were paid in beer and bread.

It’s well covered in this beer chapter.

Today, Oktoberfest is the world’s largest beer festival that is held annually in Munich, Bavaria, Germany. This too has some interesting history behind it.

A few popular beer brands:

Heineken

Corona

Bud Light

Coors Light

Would I eat it?: More like drink it and the answer is no for I don’t drink alcoholic beverages.
