The article reviews the papyrological and archaeological evidence for domestic and professional beer production in the Roman Fayum. Although home brewing became more significant, this did not signal a decline of the professional beer industry, contrary to common perception. In the papyri, beer sellers supplanted brewers, but production and sale were closely associated. Several reasons are adduced for the lack of breweries in the archaeological record of the Roman Fayum.
