Ancient beer recipe found

Breweries in Beijing and Hong Kong are trying to resurrect a beer recipe from 5,000 years ago.
Attempts of the two breweries – Jing A from Beijing and Mengshen from Hong Kong – are based on archaeological findings of an ancient formula for beer.
The drink was created in an ancient brew house, part of the Mijiaya historic site, in Xi’an, Shaanxi province
An archaeological group from Stanford University found ancient brewing equipment and vessels, which were the same as what is in use today.
However, the recipe is different, probably resulting in a sweet-tasting low-alcohol beverage, slightly tart, with no fizz.
Analysis of the ancient beer’s remains indicate it contained millet, barley, pearl barley and bits of rhizome plants.
On the other hand, ingredients in beer today are usually barley, malt, hops and yeast.
