Cheers to the barbarians: UWindsor to host symposium on ancient brews

The next time you’re sipping on a pint of your favourite peanut butter porter, take a moment to pour one out for the barbarians.

If it weren’t for those Germanic tribes in northern Europe, says University of Windsor professor Max Nelson, the popular alcoholic beverage may still be considered the “effeminate drink of foreigners.”

“The Greeks held pseudo-scientific beliefs about alcohol, including that wine is hot and manly while beer is cold and effeminate,” Dr. Nelson said.
