    Beer is paleo

    I've always believed based on my reading that alcohol was discovered and "brewed" prior to the agricultural revolution. Of course, it was probably only 3-4% alcohol.

    This study supports that, but more importantly, suggests that grains may have actually been first cultivated not to serve as a major food source, but instead for fermentation purposes.
