11,000 BC ale spe­cial brew

Irish Sunday Mirror - - NEWS -

RE­SEARCHERS say they have found the world’s old­est brew­ery with residue of 13,000-year-old beer in an Is­raeli cave.

The dis­cov­ery was made while they were study­ing a burial site for semi­no­madic hunter-gath­er­ers.

Brew­ing beer was pre­vi­ously thought to go back 5,000 years.

Li Liu, a Stan­ford Univer­sity pro­fes­sor who led the re­search team, said: “This ac­counts for the old­est record of man-made al­co­hol in the world.”
