Ancient Afrikan Beer and Goddesses.. Umqombothi.. and many other names we know our traditional Beer..
Beer has been around for ages, more than 5.000 years actually. But the stuff our ancient ancestors drank was quite a different brew than the large variety of beers we know today. In 2013 the Great Lakes Brewing Company in Cleveland (USA) joined forces with archaeologists from the nearby University of Chicago to brew a beer in the way people did 5.000 years ago in Mesopotamia. As a recipe they used a song the Sumerians made for their beer goddess: the Hymn to Ninkasi. This brew never hit the market but there are some modern versions available. Or you can just make your own Sumerian beer.
