Before effective sanitation, everyone drank beer and wine because water was unsafe to drink.
Young children would move from milk to beer, never water.
Drinks were weak though by modern standards.

Less of an issue when we discovered that water could be rendered safe by boiling. Switch from primarily drinking alcohol to primarily drinking tea was a key driver of The Enlightenment.

Coffee was popularized in the Americas as a patriotic alternative to tea - which was being grown in India and was controlled by the British.

Good morning. We seem to have skipped Spring in NYC - Winter continued until mid May and Summer took it from there....
