The Benevolent Order of Zymurology is as ancient as time itself with its beginnings lost to antiquity, although the tenets of our faith have been honed through the ages.

The immaculate beverage known to laypeople simply as beer is one of the world's oldest dating back to the 6th millennium BC before the advent of writing, credited to the Sumerian's which referenced the most divine of beverages and offered prayers to the goddess Ninkasi. "The Hymn to Ninkasi" served as both a prayer as well as a method of remembering the recipe. Archeological evidence of the creation of beer is over 5,000 years old from the site of Godin Tepe in the Zagros Mountains of western Iran. As several noted scholars through the ages such as Frank Zappa noted, the invention of bread and beer was likely responsible for humanity's ability to develop technology and build civilizations.

By the 7th century AD beer was increasingly being produced and sold by European monasteries inhabited by monks that delved into the rudimentary scientific methods of the time to improve their craft. During the Industrial Revolution, much of the production of beer in countries such as England and the United States moved from artisanal to industrial production.
