Neolithic Man – The discovery of alcohol was made by a Neolithic man 10,000 years ago. Archaeologists have found evidence at the end of the Stone Age that they deliberately made fermented beverages.

There is a record of beer brewing and eating in Egypt’s history before 5.4 BC. The world’s oldest alcoholic beverage still exists in Egypt’s Hirakonpolis until today, and when it was in full production it is thought that it was capable of producing more than 300 gallons of beer a day. The ancient Egyptians made 17 kinds of beer and 24 kinds of wine. It was so important in the society that it was sacrificed in worship of their body.

A similar archaeological find in China around 3000,000 BC proves how they worked on a combination of honey, rice, and fruit. Interestingly, China has stuck with rice-based fermentation evolution in modern times.

Alcohol was produced in different forms at different times during the same period. There was a rice drink between 3,000 and 2,000 BC in India. In Greece, they made a beverage called meat from honey and water. Some prominent Greek philosophers mention alcohol, Hippocrates recognized the rich medicinal properties of wine and its application, Plato was instrumental in promoting a moderate mode of alcoholism, but both Plato and Aristotle were not averse to getting drunk. Babylon’s history indicates that they were worshiping the goddess of wine around 2,700 BC.

The Romans ultimately liked wine over beer. The wine was wasted but needed in such great quantities that they ensured the production of wine making throughout their empire.

Although there are examples of disintegration by the Greeks in the early Christian first century, it was not until the 16th century that features began to appear in society for spirit consumption, which was primarily intended for inal herbs, a popular saying that made the 16th century spirits, the 17th. Centuries united them and made them popular in the 18th century. Shiny champagne was another well-known alcoholic beverage made in the 17th century. In the eighteenth century, the British Parliament passed a law encouraging the production of spirit souls using grain, but as production increased and cheaper spirits became widely available in the mid-18th century, drinking became a recognized problem.

Unlike the 18th century, the 19th century marked a shift in attitude and a tendency for mood – as a result of the ban on the production, sale or consumption of alcohol in the United States of America between 1920 and 1933. Since then, increasing knowledge and research on the negative effects of excessive alcohol addiction and its effects on health have gradually changed the social attitude toward promoting an intelligent approach to alcohol consumption, which continues to this day.
