Use of chocolate much older than originally thought -- and it was made into beer.

Ancient Cacao Beer in the NYT.

I read that in Yahoo last night before going to bed.

I had a feeling they made an alcoholic chocolate brew.

I wouldn't necessarily call it beer, I think that beer has to me made from malted grains.

That being said, I spent the last two weeks drinking chicha in Peru, an ancient fermented beverage made from corn in this case.

Now that is aging.

sorry, miswrote that, the process of making it is ancient...the stuff I drank was fresh, they drink it while it is fermenting, the later in the day, the more alcoholic it becomes.

I knew that. I was messing with you.

I have drank brews in Africa: that where made the day before.

It's made in a trash can from maize and stuff I don't want to know about. Then they take a bowl and drink from it.
I'm pretty sure you can't catch aids from saliver.
