The first barley beer was most likely born in the Middle East, where hard evidence of beer production dates back about 5,000 years to the Sumerians of ancient Mesopotamia. In those early days barley stored in a container that got wet eventually fermented into the first evolution of beer.

Although the beer school he holds doesn’t get down to the microbiological level, he does make it easier to understand what you’re drinking.
