Dating back to Ancient Egypt, humans have made beer. Over the centuries, humans have perfected beer making from fermented, water-soaked crumbled bread into a grain-brewing artistry that has produced the many breweries and tasty beer varieties we have today. Whether one prefers top fermenting ales or bottom fermenting lagers, it can be agreed amongst all that beer is a beautiful thing.
