Frivolous Friday Fun – Ten Barrel Brew House in Ancient Egypt?

My wife Paula, an amateur Egyptologist, just brought to my attention a really cool article about a working brewery that was in full production in pre-dynastic Egypt.

And keep in mind that this was roughly 5000 years ago – well before the first pyramid was even a glint in Pharaoh’s eye. Nice to know humans have always had their priorities straight!
