The history of the human species and civilization itself is, in many ways, the
history of fermented beverages. Drawing upon recent archaeological
discoveries, molecular and DNA sleuthing, and the texts and art of
long-forgotten peoples, Patrick McGovern takes us on a fascinating odyssey
back to the beginning when early humanoids probably enjoyed a wild fruit
or honey wine.
