Because of bacteria, because of the difficulty of getting clean water...and because stored juices ferment naturally with no cooling mechanism...alcohol was the main drink of the medieval and classical worlds. Rather low alcohol content, however. They often mixed it with their water to kill off the bacteria in the water.


I applaud you for the historicity; some people say that alcohol is intrinsically evil and should be avoided at all costs, and I use the same facts to prove that fermented drink was a necessity.  But I agree, there is something wrong with the way our society abuses alcohol.
