Ancient Mass production of brewery uncovered in Egypt

5,000 years old brewery have been discovered in Egypt by archaeologists, that could produce thousands of litres of beer in the Abydos, an ancient Egyptian city.

The site, in Egypt’s Sohag Governorate likely dates back to the reign of King Narmer around 3,100 BC, Reuters reported.

Dr. Matthew Adams, one of the leaders of the Egyptian-American mission that came up with the discovery, said he believes the beer was used during burial rituals for Egypt’s earliest kings.

The brewery had a capacity of producing a capacity of 22,400 litres and was split into eight sections each containing 40 clay pots used to warm mixtures of grain and water.
