George washington was a devout beer lover. In particular, he was
fond of the English-style brew known as porter, and always demanded that an ample supply of it be kept on hand at mount Vernon, his Virginia estate. However, it was not rather ”small beer”, for which Washington once recorded an early recipe. Preserved in the manuscript collections of the New York Public Library is a notebook kept by Washington, which includes the following hand-written recipe.

Beer is one of the oldest beverages humans have ever produced, dating back to at least the 5th millennium bc and recorded in the written history of ancient egypt and mesopotamia. as almost any cereal containing certain sugars can undergo spontaneous fermentation due to wild yeasts in the air, it is possible that beer-like beverages were independently developed throughout the world soon after a tribe or culture had domesticated cereal. cemical tests of ancient pottery jars reveal that beer was produced about 7000 years ago in what is today iran, and was one of the firt-known biological engineering tasks where the biological process of fermentation is used in a process. in mesopotamia, the oldest evidence of beer is believed to be a 6000 year old sumarian tablet depicting people drinking a beverage through reed straws from a bowl. a 3900 year old sumarian poem honoring ninkas, the the patron goddess of brewing, contains the oldest surviving beer recipe, describing the production of beer from barley via bread.
Historical documentation shows that around 6000 years ago, ancient chinese civilizations were brewing a beer like substance known as kyui.
Beer was one of the most common drinks durring the middle ages. it was consumed daily by all social classes in the northern and eastern parts of europe where grape cultivation was difficult or impossible. Though wine of varying qualities was the most common drink in the south, beer was still popular among the working classes. since the purity of water could seldom be guaranteed, alcoholic drinks were a popular choice, having been boiled as part of the brewing process, beer also provided a considerable amount of the daily calories needed to survive in the northern regions!
