Alexander the Great 20/21 July 356 – 10/11 June 323 BC (Wiki http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alexander_the_Great)

Rome's history spans more than two and a half thousand years, since its legendary founding in 753 BC (Wiki http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rome).

Quote from WIKI: "Beer was part of the daily diet of Egyptian Pharaohs over 5,000 years ago. Then, it was made from baked barley bread, and was also used in religious practices.[15]

The role of beer in Egyptian society was far greater than just a drink. Often, beer was prescribed to treat various illnesses. Beer was considered to be the most proper gift to give to Egyptian Pharaohs, and it was also offered as a sacrifice to the gods.[citation needed]

Based on historical evidence, it appears that the Egyptians taught the Greeks the beer brewing process....

hmmm. it seems the Egyptians were Making beer before 356 BC and way before 753 BC. Funny, I did not see anything about Alexander the Great and beer in the wiki post History_of_beer.
