Xenophon-an ancient Greek philosopher, a historian who was also the student of Socrates, wrote in his book "Anabasis" about a drink he happened to see in Armenia in the 5th century BC. "There were stored wheat, barley, vegetables, and barleywine in the craters (clay pots). In the upper level of vessels with the edges in the wine floated barley, and there was stuck a reed, large and small sizes and who wanted to drink, had to take a reed in his mouth and pull it through the wine. Not mixed with water, the wine was very strong, but for local people, it was a very pleasant drink". This description reminds us of a drink that later was named as beer, becoming very popular worldwide.
