How Beer Saved the World (How Beer Saved the World)
Did you know that Beer was critical to the birth of civilization? Or that it played a crucial role in the building of the pyramids, the founding of America, the industrial revolution, and advancements in medicine. That s right - Beer. Scientists and historians line up to tell the amazing, untold story that puts beer at the center of the human civilization. Until almost modern times, it wasn t just a drink - beer was vital to life. Where water contained deadly bacteria, beer was safe, as the fermentation killed the germs. It was drunk by men, women and children for large period of history, and inspired great moments in human history. Louise Pasteur was studying beer when he discovered Germ theory the basis of modern medicine. Bottling plants invented factory lines and stopped child labor. The Medieval Church became so rich making beer, that kings had to ban them from producing it. And it was vital to the birth of America from the moment the Mayflower stopped in Plymouth because it had run out of beer. In the immortal words of Benjamin Franklin Beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy
