This was a pretty cool documentary. There were many interesting stories regarding beer's effect on the world. While some of the connections were a bit of a stretch, the documentary still served as informational. Even if you might not like it, for only 43 minutes running time, consider it a documentary worth watching.

As a side remark, the documentary mentions that the way the beer the Egyptians drank was actually quite nutritious and good for their health. It left me wondering, does that imply the beer they were drinking wasn't tasty? Otherwise, why don't we drink this healthier and nutritious beer?
