it is doubtful that they would have shipped the sap to europe; it wouldn't
keep well, and would be a fairly low value cargo. likewise, finished beer
wasn't shipped, as it was, until later during the colonial period, of lower
quality than european. the first commercial brewery opened in 1612, in New
Amsterdam, although colonists had been brewing by 1587.(American Breweries II)
