The Critical 'I'

Read. React. Repeat.

Brewsky for you-sky, Peruvian-style, as archaeologists have uncovered an ancient large-scale brewery in the Andes.
It is believed to have been used to brew vast quantities of a spicy, beer-like alcoholic drink called "chicha" and served to hundreds at one sitting.

It is thought that the fermented drink, made today with corn, was used for ritual intoxication by the Wari people.
I think Anheuser-Busch or Miller needs to jump on this discovery and start producing a modern-day chicha, in convenient six-packs.
