According to archaeologists, brewing beer is one of the signs of a stable civilization. All over the world, in almost every culture, the domestication of cereal grains was followed almost immediately by beer brewing. In ancient Egypt, brewing was a community project. In medieval Europe, brewing became tightly regulated, with families fighting to be recognized as the official brewers for their community. There were even Parliamentary rules written about what could be considered beer, based on brewing methods and ingredients. Nowadays, every bar and pub offers dozens of microbrews and imports. You can even become your own brewmaster for as little as $60.
