Nowadays, beer is usually associated with men, but recent reports have shown that beer was actually manufactured by women. Britain’s beer sommelier of the year and booze historian, Jane Peyton, wrote about the fact that women were in charge of beer making centuries ago. According to Peyton, beer was originated in Mesopotamia and Sumer 7,000 years ago, and to everyone’s surprise, it was women who made it.

In the 13th Century, women were the only producers of beer in Nordic societies and interestingly enough, they were protected by the law in doing so. In England, Ale beer was organically made by women and they provided great income and economic aid to families of that era.

"Precious" beer, a beverage that claims to make people prettier, was recently released in Japan. There is no scientific back up to these statements but what has been told is, that the beer contains two whole grams of collagen. The substance is well known to improve skin cells and make people younger and prettier. Even though these allegations haven’t been proved, beer consumption can have benefits for everyone (if you drink it with moderation, of course!).
