About the project

The history of brewing is rooted in ancient times. This was told to us by numerous archaeological evidence. So the German archaeologist E. Huber in Mesopotamia in the church utensils 111th millennium were found Sumerian beer recipes printed on the stone and there are at least 15 varieties of this drink with different flavor characteristics. Most popular beer in Mesopotamia, with an even bread. Technology of ancient brewing strikingly different from sovremennoy- beer done from bad propechennyh bread cakes that were boiled together with malt. The resulting mass was allowed to ferment, and then drank through a special straw.

Subsequently brewing flourished in Egypt, where migrated to Ethiopia, Persia and the Caucasus, where a method of preparing beer improved and acquired new technologies and features.

In Europe, beer is widespread in the Middle Ages. European beer is considered to be the birthplace of Germany. It starogermanskoe words Reog or Vgog transformed into German and English Bier - Beer. And in Europe, according to one version, for the first time added to the beer hops. In addition, to diversify the flavor palette of beer added spices, herbs, berries and fruit juices.

In Russia already in the IX century brewing was widespread. Barley drink was very popular and was made in almost every household. The first mention of the bubbly beverage found on birchbark documents found during excavations in the ancient Novgorod. During the reign of Ivan III, the beer was forbidden to cook someone other than public services. Peter I and Catherine II also contributed to the development of brewing.

Technological breakthrough in the history of brewing became scientific discoveries of Louis Pasteur, who investigated the brewer's yeast, and published a book "Essays on the beer." It is easy to guess what he came up with "pasteurized" beers, which increased product life cycle.

Modern brewing has a high adaptability. So the factories Efes Rus established the most advanced equipment to automate the entire process. However, the ingredients remain the same for cooking of beer - water, malt, yeast and hops.

We offer visitors a virtual tour, where you can witness the life of a modern brewery and the entire production process from preparation of malt piva- prior to shipment of finished goods from the warehouse.
