You may be familiar with Dogfish Head’s Ancient Ales series, which draws inspiration from sources like King Midas’ tomb and historic Finnish brewing traditions to create new beers rooted in the past. More recently, fossil hunter Jason Osborne teamed up with Lost Rhino Brewing Co. to make an ale using yeast found in 35-million-year-old whale fossils.

To celebrate the way in which the evolution of two species—”a multicellular animal called a human and a single-celled fungus called yeast”—combined to give us beer, NPR’s The Salt put together this great video that offers a fly-over history of earth, all through the lens of a pint glass.
