Formerly brewed at Bryggeriet Ølfabrikken (Gourmetbryggeriet - Harboe)
In the 1930'ties archaeologist found some 3800 year old clay tablets, which described how a fermented beverage was brewed by the Sumerians.
The poem in the clay tablets was called "The Hymn to Ninkasi". When we brewed the beer we baked some bappir, which is a dried bread made of barley, honey and dates. The bread was mashed with barley malt.
It does not contain hops and it is not boiled either. A mixture of wine yeast, wild yeast and acid producing bacteria are responsible for the fermentation. For more information see http://www.olfabrikken.dk/ninkasi
