As far as I know, the process of fermentation, proved L. Pasteur. in 1861, read more about it here. In short, he proved that fermentation is associated with fungi that feed on fermentation liquid, and of course they multiply in this way. However, people use this process for a long time before it is opened, for example, when making wines and other alcohol)

I can add. Pasteur discovered microorganisms, proving that fermentation is their habitat, where they feed and multiply. He also invented alcohol pasteurization. He found that wine diseases are caused by microorganisms that multiply during the fermentation of wines and proposed a solution - to pasteurize the wines by heating to 60 degrees to kill all these microorganisms.
