Without Beer, mankind would not have survived the Dark Ages. The alcohol in the beer killed the bacteria in the water. They had not yet invented sewage treatment so they just dumped it into the street and then into the river. Anyone downstream was therefore drinking someone elses excrements, not too healthy. Along came beer and people had something to hydrate them that would not kill them.

The beer of the middle ages would hardly be recognizable as beer today. Beer was "designed" as carbohydrate storage system in the days when didn't have other mechanisms to successfully store grain.

As far as Mikey is concerned, she will say or do anything to get something positive out on the airwaves. How low can she get telling people to drink water. How stupid does she think we are?
