The incredulous tone of the lady caught my attention: a beer with added C-vitamin was advertised as good for customers.
Like so many, she had no idea that beer was the only thing that allowed long voyages for trading between customers. It also supported overland trips between the East and the West.
Huh? Beer? I don't believe it.
She never knew that refrigeration had not been invented, and all other standard foods would spoil in a few days. Only beer would survive for a long time. It alone allowed food for long trips.
The world as we know it could not have evolved without beer.
