“The Indiana Jones of ancient ales and extreme beverages” (NPR) takes readers on a well- lubricated

Interweaving archaeology and science, Patrick E. McGovern uncovers the world’s ancient cultures through an unlikely lens: our oldest alcoholic beverages. Our ancestors likely experimented with high-sugar fruits, honey, roots and cereals, herbs and tree resins, mixing wines, beers, meads, and botanicals together to concoct the perfect drink. By sharing the origins of brews such as the “The King Midas Golden Elixir” from Turkey and the 9,000-year-old “Chateau Jiahu” of China, McGovern opens a window into the lives of their original connoisseurs. For the intrepid reader, homebrew interpretations of each ancient beverage and culturally appropriate meal recipes are provided. McGovern proves that the humble brew is more than just a drink-it’s a heady “liquid time capsule” of social, medicinal, and religious significance that can transport us back in time.
