On This Day In Chemistry

November 5th

The chemical evidence of 5,000-year-old beer was reported in the journal Nature on this day in 1992

It was found at Godin Tepe in the Zagros Mountains of Iran, an important fortress on the Silk Road. Researchers found evidence of wine from around the same period, but it is thought that beer was the most popular beverage in lower Mesopotamia at the time.
