I remember how surprising it was that they discovered 14,000 year old bread.
Ancient Bread
This gives me renewed faith in the coolness of humanity!


According to a report in The Times of Israel, evidence of beer brewing by the Natufians has been found on stone mortars dating to between 11,700 and 13,700 years ago. The mortars were found in northern Israel, near Raqefet Cave. Evidence of bread baked by the Natufians between 11,600 and 14,600 years ago was recently found in northeastern Jordan.

ARCHAEOLOGY.ORG



“They packed plant-foods, including malted wheat/barley, in fiber-made containers and stored them in boulder mortars. They used bedrock mortars for pounding and cooking plant-foods, including brewing wheat/barley-based beer likely served in ritual feasts ca. 13,000 years ago,” the scientists write.

Im thinking perhaps, yea Israel, is more appropriate! Beer in 11000bc! woulda made the lesser Dryas much more livable


But when you think about it, I imagine we as humans, proto humans etc have been enjoying "wines and beers" for as long as we have had the capacity to make containers capable of holding liquids. When you consider animal skins, that may be a million years.

Plants like grapes, elder berry, juniper berry, all are prolific attractors of airborn yeast and certainly ferment rapidly as does honey with as little as 10% moisture.

Great op!

Or, what did they speak in Palestine 13K yrs ago, Aramaic, or Sumerian or something?

Well, now we know why those hunter gatherers built Gobekli Tepe.

They were hammered.

Improved farming techniques are said to be responsible for modern civilization. But what was the catalyst for the boom in agriculture?

Wheat, rye and barley brought societies together and many think that bread was the glue that held them together.

Not me, once wild grains were cultivated both bakeries and breweries sprung up. Bread was important for nourishment, beer was important for potable water and nourishment.

The debate goes on for the cultivation of wild grains. Which came first beer or bread ?

I am betting on beer .

OMG...

We really are simple creatures...

Most modern communication technology is the result of the porn industry...

and humanity's explosive efforts to develop agrigulture was inspired by the need for more beer!

Miss that guy


On topic..one wonders how they figured out the process, probably an accidental discovery.

2500 year old Celtic beer Recipe resurrected.



Other guidelines came from the even more ancient Wadi Kubbaniya, an 18,000-year-old site in Upper Egypt where starch-dusted stones, probably used for grinding sorghum or bulrush, were found with the remains of doum-palm fruit and chamomile. It’s difficult to confirm, but “it’s very likely they were making beer there,” McGovern says.

The Beer Archaeologist




We brewed an ancient Graeco-Roman beer and here's how it tastes

I thought 13k was a long time ago, now this guy's saying 18kya. There must have been a collection of experimentally-minded brainy guys to have discovered the process. Somebody, somewhere might have liked the feeling of drunkenness and back-tracked the process. They'd be like a modern chemist in how their brains were wired only they'd be wearing animal pelts and smelling like week old kitchen waste. I wonder if they also noticed how fermentation made water safer to drink??

This is what I love about humanity! Tobacco, wine, beer, fried eggs. Observation and experimentation. "Hmmm if I burn this and chew that, this happens. Oh if I eat that fungus, I get wild ideas."
