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.
