"But that doesn't mean the ancient beer wouldn't bee good, I think we just won't ever know."I don't think so. How long would a local brewpub last if it made an undrinkable product? Think of the ancient brewers/brewsters as local brewpubs who learned their craft from generations of experimentation. After a while you've got to hit on the right formula.
I think we can be sure that most beer was crap in the good old days. Don't believe it, try brewing without a thermometer, sanitizer, yeast, electricity/propane and stainless steel. Get your water from the nearest creek, river, pond or lake. It would probably be a good idea to pee in the water to replicate the good old days lack of sewage treatment. If there were sewers, somebody else's untreated "discharge" was probably just far enough upstream to not see "floaters."
People will eat, drink, smoke, and inject anything to kill a few brain cells.
A friend of mine has a big hopcone on one shoulder, with bines around it. I've never taken a really good look at it, but from what I've seen it looks pretty cool.I've seen her too. It's not polite to stare.
