“… Great Lakes has been trying to imitate a bygone era. Enlisting the help of archaeologists at the University of Chicago, the company has been trying for more than year to replicate a 5,000-year-old Sumerian beer using only clay vessels and a wooden spoon…”

Didn’t Dogfish Head already do this?

I’d bet that they used more than a clay pot and a spoon - wouldn’t they need some malt and water, at least?
