Nice try but you left out the oldest drink of all, Mead. Brewed by the Egyptians and probably before with honey.

Dude, that's harsh -- she explicitly said that it's not definitive!

Anyway, I think it's awesome and extremely useful.

Not to be a stickler, but wine coolers have nothing in common with wine. They're actually just flavored malt liquor.

Mr. Gunn says:

Aren't most belgian ales spontaneously fermented also?

Hannah says:

This is super cool. You've got both my favorites: porter and lambic. :)

If you are interested in the history surrounding various drinks I recommend reading A History of the World in 6 Glasses by Tom Standage. The six drink categories he covers are beer, wine, spirits, coffee, tea, and cola.
