DescriptionA Toast to Ninkasi: Sipping Sumerian Beer

Drawing from cuneiform texts, including the Hymn to Ninkasi, Great Lakes Brewing Company and archaeologists from the Oriental Institute have partnered to recreate a 5,000-year-old Sumerian beer recipe. Join us at the Oriental Institute to discover how Great Lakes worked with Oriental Institute scholars to recreate this ancient libation and the technology used to produce it. Enjoy three ancient beer recipes as Sumerians of all classes did - by sipping it through a long straw. Tickets include a reception in our Edgar and Deborah Jannotta Mesopotamian Gallery featuring hors d’oeuvres by Food for Thought and pairings from Great Lakes Brewing, including the Sumerian beer tasting.

General public entry is $30
Oriental Institute members receive a discounted entry of $15
One additional ticket may be purchased for OI members at the discounted rate.
