The find is the strongest yet that antibiotics were previously discovered by humans before Alexander Fleming discovered penicillin in 1928." (http://www.wired.com/2010/09/antibiotic-beer/)

Very interesting. It must've taken some extrodinary incompotence from doctors to make so many bacteria resistant to a drug that's existed for millenia. Have a great day!
