For instance-I read the other day about a piece of pottery some scientists dug up in Mesopotamia. On the pottejry was a picture of two brewery workers making beer. That picture was 6,000 years old! * * • • You know, that's something to think about. Beer...6,MO years ago! I wonder if it tasted anything like the good lager beer I have sent up to the house every now and then.
