In honor of International Beer Day, an unofficial holiday observed on August 3, 2018, I thought I’d take the opportunity this week to focus on this well-loved beverage.
Beer has been around for a long time. Evidence of beer dates back about 5,000 years (those ancient Sumerians surely knew how to have a good time). Archeologists have unearthed vessels from about 3,400 BC lined with beer residue. And the ancient Egyptians enjoyed beer as part of their daily lives — even children drank this bubbly brew.
