Archaeologists just unearthed a 5,000-year-old brewery in ancient Egypt. The facility dates back to 3100 B.C. and includes eight sections, each filled with several dozen clay pots that were used to warm grain and water.  Experts believe it could have produced nearly 6,000 gallons of beer at a time! Researchers believe ancient Egyptians used beer during burial and sacrificial rites.  Who says you can’t take it with you!
