This is a good reference for grassfinished meat...its a pretty comprehensive registry. (w,f,s)

You would have to ask specifically about fillers, etc...some will still use wheat crumbs.

I'm pretty sure cavemen did the same think these animals do (WFS)

Fermented, rotting fruit.

I have no doubt early man knew how to get a buzz on!

Gin is distilled, meaning at minimum it requires a means for boiling stuff and a means for catching and condensing the steam. Same problem with tequila. Cavemen had fire, but not temperature-controlled fractional distillation. Not paleo, although non-purists would probably be willing to make an exception.

Octli/pulque is made from fermented agave nectar--the raw material for tequila-- and would be okay. Wine, likewise, is made from fermented grapes. Any other fermented fruit beverage would also be okay: hard cider, berry wine, etc. All of these can be accomplished with natural yeasts: bounce ripe grapes around in your paleo-compliant backpack for a while and you'll have a hard time *preventing* fermentation.

Beer is fermented, but grain-based. No joy.

Good advice Phillip.

Trust me, I'm not giving up the beer.
