It's an  interesting theory, though given the size of the constructions (250
litres  or more) it would indicate a scale of brewing unknown outside the
cities of  Mesopotamia and Egypt, yes ?


   As a Gael myself, that does not seem unreasonable.   It has been said that 
God invented whiskey  
(or whisky, as we Scots spell it) to keep the Irish from conquering the  
World, so it seems reasonable
that he had them build multiple breweries to hold them back until he could  
boot some fool into inventing
distillation.
