Abydos beer factory: Ancient large-scale brewery discovered in Egypt.
"The archaeological find in the Abydos burial ground is thought to date back about 5,000 years."
They brewed beer in batch sizes of about 220 hectolitres and I bet they got away without paying much beer duty. Wonder if we can work out some of the recipes.
