CLEVELAND—Great Lakes Brewing Co. (GLBC) announces a historic beer dinner 4,000 years in the making. For the past year, our brewers and archaeologists at the University of Chicago’s Oriental Institute have attempted to create an authentic version of an ancient Sumerian ale without the aid of modern brewing equipment. On August 14 we will debut this Sumerian beer in our Brewery’s Tasting Room at an educational and interactive event that will go down in history.
Seated amongst festive décor, guests will enjoy a family-style Sumerian feast, including ancient recipes prepared by our Brewpub’s chefs. Guests will also receive samples of two versions of our Sumerian beer: an “authentic” version, served from the custom ceramic vessels it was brewed in, and a “modern” version, the same recipe brewed in our Brewpub’s stainless steel Brewhouse.
GLBC Co-Owner and Sumerian beer collaborator Pat Conway will speak about the project and answer questions, along with key members of the Sumerian brewing and research teams. A similar event will take place in Chicago; details to follow.
