Alcohol consumption has been part of cultural celebrations since the beginning of recorded history.
King Tutankhamun was buried with many bottles of wine, both red and white variates. Historical records show that pyramid builders in the ancient world received daily rations of fermented beverages. In ancient China, alcohol was revered as a sacred liquid used in ceremonial religious practices, later incorporated into one of the Nine Rites. Special ministries were developed to manage brewing and fermenting. As popularity grew, a yellow wine made with Millet became more widely available. Mead, a drink made by fermenting honey was a much loved beverage of early Celtic tribes and Viking explorers. The Mayan civilization fermented corn and cacao making a drink called Pozol and Mongol tribes fermented Mare's milk to create Kumis.
In modern society drinking alcohol has become common practice to wind down at the end of the day, celebrate success, or social libation. However, for a growing number of reasons many are choosing healthier habits and choosing to abstain from over consumption.
