Drinking in the Past: Rediscovering and Recreating Ancient Egyptian Brews

August 3 @ 6:00 pm - August 4 @ 9:00 pm

Join Patrick E. McGovern, the “Indiana Jones of Ancient Ales, Wines, and Extreme Beverages,” as he decodes long-forgotten drink recipes of ancient Egypt.  Taking his clues from archaeology, texts, tomb art, ethnography, and chemical analysis of residues inside pottery jars, McGovern unravels what ancient Egyptians were imbibing. Beyond their mind-altering effects, these beverages were to become the medicines, religious symbols, and social lubricants of ancient Egyptian culture for thousands of years. His talk, paired with a special beer tasting complements the exhibition Beyond the Nile: Egypt and the Classical World.
