We got our latest copy of Smithsonian magazine (July/August) yesterday, and it has an article entitled "Dig, Drink and be Merry" about beer archæology. This subject may be familiar to some who've watched several TV shows including Brewmasters, but the article is fun to read, detailing the discovery and subsequent search for ancient ale throughout the world.
“Malt does more than Milton can / To justify God’s ways to man”
