Default "How beer saved the world" documentary

Anybody else watch this? 43 minutes long. I originally watched it in one of the Discovery Network's channels, don't remember which one, but just found it online.

It is on Netflix as well. I haven't watched it but I have watched Beer Wars which was quite interesting.

I watched it a couple weeks ago on Netflix. Interesting documentary.... although I found much of what they credited beer to being far fetched. For example, they claim the pyramids in Egypt were built because they were able to pay the workers in beer. So if there were no beer there would be no pyramids? Yeah... I don't buy that.

Regardless.... it was an interesting documentary
