Jane Peyton, 48, an author, said women created beer and for thousands of years it was only they who were allowed to operate breweries and drink beer.

The drink is now almost exclusively marketed to men - with television characters such as Homer Simpson the epitome of the beer-loving male.

Miss Peyton has conducted extensive research into the origins of beer for a new book and reports that a woman's touch was found on beer throughout the ages.

Nearly 7,000 years ago in Mesopotamia and Sumeria, so important were their skills that they were the only ones allowed to brew the drink or run any taverns.

And in almost all ancient societies beer was also then considered to be a gift from a goddess, never a male God.


Proof that women are trying to control us!!! we are being invaded!!! First the secret society, then the government followed by the alien abduction and now we have to deal with women trying to dumb us down with Beer... this must be the mother of all conspiracies, when will it all stop!!!

women are the best thing that ever happened to men.

runnin' out of TP, dirty dishes (if we used any), floor catching on fire,

still wearing animal skins or worse!

i'm on your side!

men will never cook as good as their mom or grandma.

Thanks

Personaly I think you are aloud to say everything you want in the biggest kind of way.

But due to the easily insulted public I felt it was the right thing to do.
No offense from my part and no offense taken.

Can't we all just get along and enjoy alcohol, whether it be liquor/beer/wine, without bringing sexism into the picture?

Ok, go right ahead and take credit. I sure don't care.

Beer:
-Insane hangovers
-Urinate way too much
-Gives me the sh**s the next day
-Tastes like crap
-Gives me a headache and doesn't even get me intoxicated at all

I'll stick to my tequila and rum

Why is that thread on the front page?
Don't we have more important things to discuss about?
Go on belowtopsecret for Christ's sake

Let me get this straight.


The process of fermentation was.... "Invented"?


Ok, let me paint a little picture.



There is an Orange tree... full bloom...


One of the Oranges falls from the tree onto a stone.

The orange bakes, and is digested by microorganisms.

The alcohol is metabolized by this process by completely natural means.



The inventor was not human, it is natural process.



You ever see people's houses who leave there Jack-o-Lanterns out for a few too many weeks?

All decaying, and.... slimy?


Yeah, that is the invention of Pumpkin Ale.


You heard the one about animals eating decaying fruit because it get's them drunk?




Now *THAT*, is Special!

Yeah, the old legend is..is that women created beer so that men would think they looked more attractive. It does work until morning.

I don't drink anyway, it tends to make men do things they wouldn't normally do and make irrational descisions like hit on a girl, have a passionate night with her, wake-up disinterested but TOO LATE, she's already going to get pregnant because you were drunk and forgot your condom and she "forgot" her pill again and so you have to marry her and have one or two more kids, the marriage goes sour and she divorces you and sues you for child support and alimony and effectively destroys any hope of you ever achieveing anything in life and now you owe the IRS and a vindictive woman who you hate and never would have even touched if it wasn't for beer...............SO THANKS ALOT WOMEN, WE REALLY APPRECIATE IT! A real bonus to mankind.

Lets not forget that everybody drank beer "back in the day" cuz the water sucked! Beer was the drink of choice for survival! The who and why's don't matter in this case. It was made, we drank it and now we tweek it
Whoever first brewed it should be a hero {or heroine} to all humanity!

Beer makes you MORE thirsty so dont act like it was a substitute to crappy water......you drink the beer, you wake up in the morning drinking just as much crappy water to replace the water that beer expends. Beer is a curse to mankind and makes otherwise intelligent people as dumb as rocks and as violent as criminals.Never once have I heard a drunk person get an award for doing anything great while drinking beer. So I hardly would call the creator a heroine. More like a cancer to mankind. Besides that doesn't make any sense, what you said "Beer was the drink of choice for survival!" ...was it "choice" or was it "survival" because in a survival situation...you have limited choices and water, crappy or not sounds like another option? Didn't people have anything other than beer and crappy water back in the day? Milk, crappy water disquised as tea? lemonade? ANYTHING?

The title of this thread is misleading. No one knows who first created beer, let alone their sex. The only thing this article claims is that beer was often attributed to goddesses, and it was women who were charged with brewing it. That's not surprising, considering most women back then were in charge of the homestead while the men went off to hunt or wage some silly war.

Don't let that get in the way of your perceived superiority over men though, let's keep these pissing contests going!

It figures- It tastes like horse wizz, smells twice as bad, and gives you one BAD headache after drinking it.

Another fine thing to thank women for.

If women did create beer then it's my personal belief that they did it to keep their men off of them. Most men can't get it up after drinking too much, so the woman gets a good nights sleep after babysitting him all day. Yes I am a man and this is a joke.
