FRI­DAY

Midweek Sport - - TV GUIDE -

DID you know that if it wasn’t for booze, we’d still be wan­der­ing around dressed in furs, hunt­ing and pick­ing berries?

Ac­cord­ing to this doc­u­men­tary, beer is the rea­son we de­cided to set­tle down and get civilised.

Grow­ing our own bar­ley meant we could get pissed when­ever we wanted, in­stead of hop­ing to luck upon some fer­ment­ing fruit.

So it seems that from Shake­speare to Beethoven, and cen­tral heat­ing to car­pets – it’s all down to beer.

I’ll raise a glass to that, mind you, Fri­day night at 10pm – won’t most beer drinkers be down the pub?
