To the tune of "The Hills are alive" ... "The beer is alive, and it sounds like music." This 43-minute movie is done in both a humorous and serious tone at the same time, quite a feat. I have no reason to doubt the validity of any of it.As we learn, thousands of years before recorded history beer was discovered quite by accident, when ancient hunter-gatherers likely left some grain in a container, it got wet and sprouted, then got wet enough to ferment. Then, it is speculated, living in homes instead of caves and cultivating grains for beer-making was the spark of inspiration that led eventually to civilization as we know it today.Without beer the nice pyramids of Egypt would not have been built. Beer helped hold folks alive during the dark ages when water was mostly unsafe to consume. Beer allowed the Pilgrims to create it to the fresh world. The American revolution was discussed over beer at the tavern, and the fresh National Anthem borrowed the tune from an old drinking song.It wasn't Henry Ford that popularized assembly lines, it was an automated beer bottle making machine some years earlier. Louis Pasteur wasn't looking for a method to preserve milk, it was preserving beer that got him to explore bacteria and pasteurization.Beer led to modern farming, invention of the wheel, and in more newest times the invention of refrigeration which in turn solved most of the issues associated with preserving foods. And it led to the home refrigerator.Certainly this movie was written with a slant towards the proponents of beer and the beer industry, but with the contribution of many experts it makes a nice situation for the critical role beer played in the evolution of our societies.As a beer drinker myself, I tell "Let's raise a glass of beer to beer."I saw this on Netflix streaming video.
While I think the movie over-dramatized the impact of beer on globe history just a bit, I liked its tongue in cheek style and how they managed to receive the viewer to reassess everything they'd everytime assumed about globe history. It gets HUGE kudos for managing to be very constructive and like nothing you've probably ever seen before...or since.The thesis of the present is that when primitive boy accidentally discovered beer, this discovery shaped civilization. So, to receive the grains required to create the beer, nomadic hunter-gatherers required to settle down and farm. And, before cash was used, the early commerce was fueled by beer--and Egyptian records indicate it was used to pay the workers building the pyramids (this was NOT done by slave labor, by the way, but skilled workers). And, even in modern times inventions like pasteurization and refrigeration were developed FIRST and FOREMOST to fuel the production of beer. The argument is compelling--and I recommend you watch this movie to see exactly what this history is.Overall, very funny and clever--and well worth seeing.
I love this documentary - so much so that when it was taken off of Netflix I purchased the DVD. The narration is humorously delivered to you in a matter-of-fact type of method with a touch of boasting. Great easy animations and historical re-enactments are inserted among interviews in a delicious way. This is the greatest "feel-good-about-beer" video I have ever seen. I don't think the following is spoiling anything, but I checked the spoiler alert box anyway. The documentary makes some wonderful statements. Who should imagine that beer is responsible for the invention of writing, or modern medicine, or refrigeration, or the production line in factories which place an end to kid labor! It is reason folks stopped wandering and started farming. Beer saved millions of folks from death during the plagues. It was even used to pay the folks who built the pyramids! This is a nice tribute to an nice drink, and I would like to see many more documentaries made like this one.
