Thank us later, men!
4000 years ago in ancient Sumer, women brewed and sold barley beer. So healthy and nutritious! Good for the whole family!
One fiscally-minded, ambitious female merchant expanded her business from beer-brewing bar-owner to Queen of Sumer! (details are sketchy about how she pulled that off—check stone tablets for more info)
Talk about climbing the ladder of success!
Those beer-lovin’ Sumerians even had a goddess of beer. Ninkasi. The loose translation is “the lady who fills the mouth.” Goddess Ninkasi adored beer and one follower of Inanna—goddess of sex and war—even wrote a lovely devotional poem to Ninkasi: Hymn to Ninkasi.
So ladies, tell your man it was a woman who first made this revered and celebrated nectar of the goddess!
