Brewing is an ancient tradition

in Armenia.

According to Peotrovky's

records since Urartu

kingdom epoch ( IX-IIV BC ),

on the territory of Armenia

brewing was widespread.

The “karas” jags found during

the archeological excavations

of Karmir Blur ( Yerevan ) proved this

evidence, as they were filled with corn.

There were even found cuneiform

recipes of brewing and also

different objects, characterizing the

technology of brewing,

special containers for

preparation and

keeping beer and sweet malt.

“…Armenians kept corn,
barley, vegetables and barley
wine in the cellars of their houses.
They were pouring barley wine
in the vessel and putting thin reeds.
One should have barley
wine through the
thin reed….”
