When they weren’t worshipping cats and forcing their slaves to make huge stone monuments, the pharaohs spent their time brewing some of the world’s first beer. With gratis suds provided by Brooklyn Brewery, historian Ava Forte Vitali delivers an illustrated lecture on ancient Egypt’s two obsessions: booze and the end of the world.
