Beer: a bit of history and curiosity


Beer is one of the oldest beverages in the world. The first evidence of beer on hearth has to date back to more than 6000 years ago. The Sumerians used to drink this "liquid bread", called "sikaru", which was one of the first beer ever invented. A few centuries later, the beer also appeared in the "Hammourabi code", which condemned to death those who weren't manufacturing beer according to established criteria.
