Modern civilization is beer civilization! Agriculture, cities, writing, and religion all have ties to ancient craft brewing.

Ancient Egyptians, Sumerians, Chinese, and others each perfected the brewing arts in interesting and unique ways. Beer-loving inhabitants of the Amazon, for example, mastered how to chew poisonous cassava root so it could become a drinkable beer.

Learn fascinating stories and see phenomenal artifacts that reveal the links between beer and culture, such as the solid gold beer cup of an Inca king.


Here’s a peek at some of the exhibit’s content:
