Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Well, I suppose wine making, mead and cider, which all occur with or without the involvement of people, had to have been well established long before beer. All people add is a little centralisation, organisation and storage.

Beer doesn't happen by itself, things have to happen in a certain order. Of course, the process probably evolved from some abandoned porridge, but it is not a natural process.

So, although beer is known from 2 - 3,000 BCE, I'm not surprised wine has been around for a lot longer.
