Beer is the greatest thing put on this earth and tastes good because of the hard work put into it. Entwining water with malts, hops, and with the help of yeast constitutes a never-ending quest to taste beer in all its subtleties, characteristics, and refreshing ones palette with something that is beyond average.

I love beer and I shall brew and drink until my stint on this world comes to a close.

Let's face it, beer is liquid bread -the hydraulic sandwich- and bread is one of the oldest foods man has prepared (not hunted) and dates back to before the pyramids were built. Beer has been (both on purpose and accidentally) brewed for thousands of years, and it's no mystery why. Carbohydrates, protein, carbonation, B-vitamins, and sugars, all topped off with some alcohol warmth and the divine feeling to accompany that, well, what better drink hath the?

It's why we're all here, right?

evolutionary pressure. over a period of thousands of years, societies that made beer thrived while those that didn't faded. we are designed to like it.

Helps people reproduce. Especially when combined with a dark bar.

I don't know but I doubt it would be as popular without the intoxicating affects. Something about the relationship 'helps the medicine go down'.

I remember as an early teen, I hated the taste of beer and couldn't figure out why dad liked it so much.

Which reminds me of the time I had surgery on my throat. In the hospital they had me on liquid Vicodin as I couldn't swallow pills. That stuff was the most foul tasting syrup that you could imagine. YUCK YUCK YUCK, but I had to take 4 shots per day.

The doctor sent me home with 2 large bottles of the stuff and by the second day, I was licking the 'shot' glass clean of that nectar of the Gods syrup, savoring every last bit as if it were gold.

Whew, glad this isn't a public forum...........

That is one of the more widely accepted theories. Being a biologist I believe it is pretty sound.
