Khonso Em Heb was a leading beer producer who lived 3,200 years ago in the pharaonic period and was known as the chief “maker of beer for gods of the dead”.

The archaeologists discovered the site while excavating the courtyard of another tomb belonging to the reign of King Amenhotep III of the 18th dynasty.
