brewed by Cloisters bar, edinburgh
Ninkasi was the Sumerian Goddess of beer. “The hymn to ninkasi” is a song that tells the story of how the sumerian’s brewed their beer. They used bappir – a twice baked beer bread, honey and dates to create a fermented beverage. One line stands out from the hymn – “Ninkasi, you are the one who handles the dough with a big shovel, mixing in a pit, the bappir, date & honey”.
