The brewery consists of eight sections, 20 meters long and 2.5 meters wide, with two rows of 40 earthenware for boiling a mixture of grain and water in each section. It was installed.

'This factory may date back to the time of King Narmer, who allegedly ruled Egypt around 3000 BC,' said Mustafa Wajiri, secretary-general of the Supreme Council of Antiquities in Egypt.

'The investigation revealed that the factory was able to produce about 22,400 liters of beer at the same time, given that it was located inside the facility where the king's funeral was held,' Adams said. , This beer factory was probably making beer for a special ritual for the royal family, perhaps a sacrifice ritual. '

This is not the first time that traces of ancient Egyptians brewing beer have been unearthed, and in 2015 a 5,000-year-old piece of pottery believed to have been used to make beer was found in Tel Aviv , Israel. Found at a construction site.
