Archaeologists working in western Cyprus are raising a glass to the discovery of a Bronze Age ''microbrewery''.

The team excavated a two metres by two metres mud-plaster domed structure, which it says was used as a kiln to dry malt and make beer 3,500 years ago.

It is fairly well known that malting grains and then allow yeast to ferment the wort does increase its overall nutritional value.

Often lysine content increases, as does thiamine and protein.

The yeast itself synthesizes B-complex vitamins which then remain in the fermented drink.  Yeast also contains traces of essential minerals; selenium, chromium, copper, and at levels comparable to fresh fruit and vegetables.  Yeast also has the highest glucose tolerance factor (GTF) in most if not all foods, which promotes glucose utilization in the body.  Additionally yeast can lower serum cholesterol and triglycerides.  The yeast also produces vitamin B12, riboflavin, niacin and vitamin C.

That being said, highly filtered beer removes the yeast, which is the main source for all of these benefits.
Everyone should find a beer they enjoy and raise a pint now and then.

"We see things only as we are constructed to see them, and can gain no idea of their absolute nature. With five feeble senses we pretend to comprehend the boundlessly complex cosmos, yet other beings with wider, stronger, or different range of senses might not only see very differently the things we see, but might see and study whole worlds of matter, energy, and life which lie close at hand yet can never be detected with the senses we have." - H.P. Lovecraft, "From Beyond" Published 1934
