At what precise time the first part of the Bible was divided into five books is a question not yet finally settled.

January 2, Alcohol was prevalent in ancient Egypt, especially in the form of beer. Beer was made from barley, honey, herbs and spices, and was drunk in preference to water.

It's commonly known that the Egyptians, all the way back to the time of Moses, drank beer. But no one was quite sure what it looked like or how it was made. That was, until Egyptologists started finding beer recipes amongst the hieroglyphics.
The brewers worked at it, and though it's not the beer we're used to, they managed to create a concoction that the ancient pharaohs would probably recognize.
It was probably very similar to the way beer is still produced in Sudan today. Traditionally, beer was regarded as a female activity as it was an off-shoot of bread making - the basis of the beer were loaves of specially made bread.
