>>I can store beer in an animals bladder or a bag made of skin or a woven fiber bag coated in pitch or the skull of my enemy.
You can store beer in just about anything. But, the ancients used pottery.
“You can store beer in just about anything. But, the ancients used pottery.”
Ancient’s fermented liquid long before they invented pottery and they used animals bladders and bags made of skin and gourds and woven fiber bags coated in pitch. You could even use a coconut shell (like on Gilligan’s Island). The skull comment was sarcasm. Most of human history predates the development of agriculture...and pottery.
