True. Humans have been making alcohol ever since we switched from a hunter-gatherer society to an agrarian one. The oldest archaeological examples are from thousands of years ago.. As I recall, dig sites in the fertile crescent often find pottery people would bury containing some kind of barley mash to ferment. It served to preserve a store of food.

Workers have been paid in beer.
