Egypt announced on February 14, 2021 (local time) that it had discovered the remains of the world’s oldest brewery, believed to be 5,000 years old, in Abidos, one of the most important sacred sites in ancient Egypt.
On February 14, the Egyptian tourism authorities announced on Facebook that a joint archaeological research team from Egypt and the United States, including New York University and Princeton University, discovered the remains of the world’s oldest mass-produced brewery in northern Abidos. The length of the brewery was 20m wide and consisted of 8 sections, and each section had 40 earthenware used to boil the grain and water mixture in two rows.
The Egyptian Archaeological Commission says the brewery has the potential to date back to the days of the Narmer, who ruled Egypt 3,000 BC. In addition, the investigation found that the brewery was able to produce 2,400 liters of beer at the same time. Considering that it was installed in the facility where the king’s funeral was held, the brewery was designed to provide special ceremonies or rites for the royal family. I assumed it was making.
