Today from Marigold we want to tell you who it was who invented this incredible drink that makes us not want another.
Plato commented that the man who invented beer was a wise man. But, in reality, wise women were in charge of this great discovery. Not only were they responsible for its manufacture, but during the growth of these their contributions became very important.
More than 700 years ago, in Mesopotamia beer began to be made, and women were the protagonists who mixed cereal grains, with water and herbs. They began to cook and from that mixture that arose from the need to have to eat was born Beer.
Then they began to develop their skills around that cloudy and thick liquid, but it was very nutritious, it also had the great advantage of being able to brighten your spirit. According to the British historian and beer sommelier Jane Peyton, during that time and for thousands of years, the level of knowledge that was needed about this drink meant that only they could make it and therefore commercialize them.
In the Middle Ages, beer underwent a great turn when hops were added to its production. It is a flower that characterizes beer with a bitter taste, it also allows you to keep your favorite drink for much longer. The woman who brought about this great change in beer was Abbess Hildegard of Bingen.
They ended up canonizing this woman for being a great woman who combined her work with beer, writing and botany.
With the passage of time and with the industrialization of production processes, the role of women ceased to be so important, despite the fact that more and more women enjoy and share their passion for beer.
As we have told you, the origin is in women and from Marigold we want it not to fall into oblivion and give it the importance that each and every one of them deserves.
