    Default Beer Lubricated the Rise of Civilization, Study Suggests

    Could beer have helped lead to the rise of civilization? It's a possibility, some archaeologists say.

    Their argument is that Stone Age farmers were domesticating cereals not so much to fill their stomachs but to lighten their heads, by turning the grains into beer. That has been their take for more than 50 years, and now one archaeologist says the evidence is getting stronger.

    Signs that people went to great lengths to obtain grains despite the hard work needed to make them edible, plus the knowledge that feasts were important community-building gatherings, support the idea that cereal grains were being turned into beer, said archaeologist Brian Hayden at Simon Fraser University in Canada.

    "Beer is sacred stuff in most traditional societies," said Hayden, who is planning to submit research on the origins of beer to the journal Current Anthropology.

    After a long day at work having to deal with all kinds of shit...

    I pour a nice cold beer into my favorite beer glass...and watch the bubbles rise gently into the foam.

    I take a long pull from the glass. Ahhh. Sanity restored.
