Best Answer

== Alcohol is formed by a chemical reaction called fermentation that occurs when yeast and some sort of grain are mixed in a closed container. The yeast preform anaerobic respiration and ethanol is produced along with carbon dioxide. I'm pretty sure it was from the Greek and Romans with wine. Made from grapes. Then the Irish or someone came up with the whole Beer thing. Alcohol is the second stage of sugar. When sugar ferments or decays or rots, it becomes alcohol. You can get alcohol from any grain of fruit or vegetable with a high enough sugar content. When alcohol ages, it becomes vinegar. The third stage in sugar.
