How Beer Saved the World

It's a move on netflix on how Beer Saved the World.
I have learned that beer created and or invented modern medicine, writing, and math. Started agriculture, and the plow. A pyramid builder worked for 1 gallon a beer a day. The National Anthem was borrowed from an 18th century drinking song.
It also created the first antibiotic(tetracycline)that was not officially discovered till 1948, from the Egyptians that created the pyramids. They also had beer chip, that would say that they earned 15 jars of beer. Beer built the first refrigeration, thanks to the brewing industry(thanks lager).

So thank beer and have a toast.

Unfortunately, it is not all true ( based on perspective), but still a good movie. The movie made me want to smoke out.

It was a fun watch. I personally wouldn't take it all for fact though. Not without doing some fact checking on their supposed facts anyways.

Oh yeah!? Well, my mom says I'm cool!
