The industrialization can be traced back almost 5,000 years ago to Mesopotamian writings describing daily rations of beer and bread to workers. Before the rise of modern breweries, the production of beer took place at home and was the domain of women as baking and brewing were seen as women’s work (Schlimm J, 2005). Breweries as production facilities reserved for making beer did not emerge until monasteries and other Christian institutions started producing beer not only for their own consumption, but also for sale. The industrialization of brewing shifted the responsibility of making beer to men. The oldest, but still functioning brewery in the world is believed to be in German state, owned by Weihenstephan, brewery in the city of Freising, Bavaria. It’s history goes back to 1040 AD this was disputed by the nearby Weltenbug Abdey brewery whose history could be traced back to its beer brewing tradition to at least 1050 AD, the Zatec brewery in the Czech Republic ( Schlimm J.2005).
