If you think that beer is a German assumption, you are wrong. Not that you are totally wrong, but there are some shocking elements. Archaelogists discovered ancient brewery 11.000 years old at turkey and especially at Göbekli Tepe. That means that people consumed beer for about 11.000 years in the area where Turkey is today!
Archaeologists believe that brewing was well developed in the area, as there are similar foundings in Cyprus. In the area of Turkey they were drinking beer for 11.000 years, but specialists claim that the drink was discovered 500 years before. If they are correct people living those times in the area were ahead of their time.
Researchers are positive that this area, which today is Turkey, was consuming beer 11.000 years ago. They don’t know if the consumption was on special occasions, as they cannot assure if people were consuming beer at fests, events or any other important occasion. The only certain is that beer had high reputation and offered a lot of smiles.
