Here are a few fun facts about beer that you probably did not know. As it happens, beer is the third most popular drink in the world, after water and tea. That’s right, beer – not coffee, not milk, nor any kind of internationally mass-marketed soft drink.

Beer is also quite probably the second-oldest drink in the world, right after water, made and consumed by human beings since the end of the Paleolithic or Old Stone Age. And if that weren’t enough to grab your attention, here is something a little closer to home. The earliest archaeological evidence for beer fermentation comes from right here in Israel, not far from Haifa, at Rakefet Cave in the Carmel Mountains. It was made and consumed more than 13,000 years ago by people known to archaeologists as the Natufans, pre-agricultural hunters and gatherers who lived during the Mesolithic era, a period of time between the Old and New Stone Ages.
