Egyptian Brewer’s Tomb Found

In this BBC article, it’s reported that archaeologists have found the tomb of a brewer who lived more than 3,000 years ago and served an ancient Egyptian court.

Beer was a common part of daily life in ancient Egypt, just as it is today.  It was treated as food, used as part of religious ceremonies, and even as a currency for paying slaves, tradesmen, priests, and public officials.

If you think that’s interesting, check out the documentary “How Beer Saved the World” for more interesting beer facts.
