I double dog dare you

Thanks to the ancients
who took the first dare and drank
the wet spoiled grain

Written by Captain Hops.

References: I’ve always wondered who invented/discovered beer. What made them drink that first glop that was likely the result of water getting into their stash of grain or bread? Anyway… Thanks.

Sources on the origin of beer: The First Brew Recipe, Wikipedia: The History of Beer.

Here’s another interesting little factoid for today: They say there was no beer at the first Thanksgiving. It’s not that the pilgrims were against beer, it’s because they had run out before they made landfall. It’s one of the reasons they stopped when/where they did.

Cheers and Thanks!
