We have the privileged of securing a keg of Hymn to Ninkasi from Beyond The Pale for International Women’s Day! It’s a gin barrel aged saison. The style/recipe was conceived by 5 or 6 women from BTP. They also came up with the name, created the art for the label, and sourced the gin barrels from a craft distiller in Vermont. They also participated in the brew day so they could have a hand in making the beer. The name they chose, Ninkasi is the Mesopotamian goddess of beer. The label was designed by a previous employee of BTP who wanted to depict the goddess in a more modern way that a lot of different women can relate to (no face, no skin tone). In the actual Hymn there’s talk of her watering the grains. She also has multiple arms as a sign of how busy many women are. To top it off BTP is also donating a portion of sales to Harmony House! So stop by to enjoy a glass before the keg runs dry!
Stay tuned for another special brew we are working on securing for that day. Fingers crossed! Here is a hint… #freedommachine
