FUKUOKA (Kyodo) Kirin Brewery Co. has re-created as accurately as possible the beer of the New Kingdom of ancient Egypt by employing an experimental archaeological technique at its brewery in Amagi, Fukuoka Prefecture.

The work was done by interpreting wall paintings illustrating the beer-making process in the New Kingdom (1570-1070 B.C.), in cooperation with Sakuji Yoshimura, a professor and director of Egyptology Research at Tokyo’s Waseda University.
