How Beer Ruled the Ancient World

If the Romans adored wine, the Ancient Egyptians loved a good beer. In later centuries, Bavarian brewers would add chicken blood and ox bile to their beers to improve the flavor.

Imagine excavating an ancient burial ground and running across a brewery. This is exactly what happened last month when the Egyptian government announced that a team of Egyptian and American archaeologists had discovered what may be the world's oldest known beer factory. Pyramids, Pharaohs, and now tasty adult beverages—ancient Egypt had it all.
