      Early French had a taste for beer
      PhysOrg.com [USA], June 14, 2011

      Evidence of beer making in Mediterranean France, as far back as the 5th
      century BC, has been unearthed by Laurent Bouby from the CNRS - Centre
      de Bio-Archeologie et d'Ecology in Montepellier, France, and colleagues.
      Their analyses at the Roquepertuse excavation site in Provence reveal
      the presence of poorly preserved barley grains suggesting germination,
      as well as equipment and other remains of deliberate malting in the
      home. Taken together, these findings suggest that, as well as regular
      wine making, the French had an early passion for beer brewing. The work
      has just been published online in Springer's journal Human Ecology.
