History has it that…. it was not until the Middle Ages that beer became a popular drink. Until the late 12th century, before the onset of artisan breweries, monks had a monopoly on the beer trade. Beer brewed in the monasteries was served medicinally. Legend has it that they took advantage of their position to elicit beer manufacturing secrets from their penitents during confession.
