"How does one "discover" beer? Wine I can see. Grape juice, sits in storage till it ferments and viola, you've got wine. Beer, on the other hand, requires a scientific approach to brewing ingredients, cooking, fermenting, etc. One does not accidentally come upon beer, it must be planned and researched........."

I always thought making wine and mead was much more complicated. I've made beer for years but when I read a book on wine making I thought it was pretty fussy.

Birds and bears get drunk on berries and fruit fermenting right on the vine. Wine happens.

Someone cooked the barley and then let it sit in the pot.

Liquid+starch+fermentation=Ethanol.
