Were there stimulant drinks or foods in Europe before the arrival of coffee and tea from Asia and Africa? If so, what were they, and who had access to them?

For the purposes of my question, the compound in the food or drink need not be caffeine, but it should be recognized by modern science as having a stimulant effect on humans.
