Bill Nye isn't just a science guy, he's also a very busy guy. Between his packed schedule of debating the nature of the universe and keeping up with the latest bow-tie fashions, he stopped by SXSW to judge invention ideas submitted to online marketplace Quirky. But before he got to work, we grilled him for two minutes to tell us his theory behind beer creationism.
Do you know when beer was invented?
I believe it was about 5,000 years ago in ancient Egypt, as far as we know. Is that right? You tell me! I'm not necessarily an expert on beer invention, but I lived in the Pacific Northwest for a long time where it's very popular. Every so often somebody comes forward with hops they claim were descended from ones found in the ancient pyramids. Drinking in a pyramid, could there be more of a party than that?!
