From Asia to Your Backyard

Written by Katherine Pioli

Long before Jesus turned water into wine, perhaps as far back as 9000 BP, humans were making and drinking beer, or at least something similar. The brew has seen changes. Crack open a beer from 10th century England or 12th century Germany, for example, and most drinkers would immediately notice something missing. Hops. The rhizome first sprung up in central Asia over 10,000 years ago. By piecing together ancient folklore, we can trace human cultivation of the crop as it left Asia and moved into the area now known as Romania, where is was considered a delicacy and eaten much like we eat asparagus today.
