WhippingBoy: How beer influenced RAPE-culture, maybe./amirite, White Knights?
MrEricSir: And now that beer is illegal in that part of the world, modern day Mesopotamia is the perfect model of civilization, amirite?
LrdPhoenix: Without reading the article, you make beer because the grain itself and anything else you can make with grain rots rather quickly, so beer makes for good, efficient, long term calorie storage. Without long term storage, it's difficult to grow any settlement past small village size, due to the potential for under and over production of grain leading to either not enough grain or wasted grain, so being able to store it for long periods allows you to smooth out these bumps and grow much larger.
