You're not being very nice today. If your answer is correct, I'm not going to tell you.

the ancient egyptians were known to have made beer. it was called liquid bread, and it was used to help feed the massive slave populations.

it also inspired the phrase no cerveza, no trabajo on the slaves't shirts and baseball caps...

Mr. BT is right. The Sumerians started making beer over 10,000 years ago. Wine came several thousand years later.
