Recreating China's 5,000-year-old beer

While excavating the Mijiaya ancient site, in Central China, researchers from Shaanxi Provincial Institute of Archaeology and Stanford University pieced together an amazing discovery: China's earliest in-situ microbrewery. To get a sense of how 5,000-year-old beer would have tasted, two brewers -- Jing-A Brewing Co in Beijing and Moonzen Brewery in Hong Kong -- set out to recreate the recipe.
