Ancient beer pitchers made from clay have been uncovered across present-day Armenia. This set is from the ancient Fortress of Teishebaini and date from the 7th century BCE. Like their Mesopotamian neighbors to the south, the Urartians brewed and drank lots of beer. (Erebuni Historical and Archaeological Culture Preserve, Yerevan)
