A taste of Bronze Age Brew

A modern interpretation of Denmark’s oldest known beer is now on sale at the Danish National Museum. Named “Egtved Girl’s Brew” it is based on the residue analysis of a fermented drink found in 1921 within the grave of a young female from the Bronze Age.

Egtved Girl was buried on a summers day in 1371 BCE. She was provided with a range of rich grave goods including a bronze dagger and a belt disk, but there was also something within the grave to quench her thirst in the afterlife. [...] pasthorizonspr.com (B&W3)
