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”.
Ninkasi - 3500 BC Ingredients - dates, honey, bappir, bread & smoked malts

[cask at Cloisters Bar, Edinburgh] Golden amber beer, looks pretty inviting. Sweet, slightly sticky nose – and on the flavour, the first wave is dates and honey, no question. A rumble of smoke on the finish, but only very barely – it’s mostly sweet date. Good stuff [24042014]
