We know that Egyptian priestesses were in charge of producing beverages made from fermented grains and that the first recorded recipe for beer was in a Mesopotamian hymn dedicated to the goddess Ninkasi. Much has already been said about how those, wrongly called witches, in reality brewers, made available to the workers intoxicating concoctions that transformed them almost into beasts, but we forget to mention that these same potions represented one of the few sources of drinking water known at that time. But little is said about modern witches, women who have decided to break with clichés and have dedicated themselves to putting pints of refreshing and aromatic beer in our months.

Unfortunately we did not have enough resources to continue with the project.
