It is no secret that throughout history, mythical Gods and Goddesses wanted mankind to drink alcohol, to eat delicious food, and to enjoy life to the fullest. The Greeks had at least two gods of alcohol. Dionysus was the Greek god of pleasure and festivity. But he was also the God of Intoxication, including beer, and more importantly its social and beneficial aspects. An eternally tipsy mythological deity for sure, along with his drinking buddy and fellow Greek god Silenus. Aside from the Greeks, there were many more Gods and Goddesses of beer in other cultures, such as Aegir, the Norse God of the Sea and the brewer to the Gods of Asgard. And Albina, the Arcadian, British & Irish White Barley Goddess. Mayahuel, the Aztec Goddess of alcohol. Dumuzi, the Sumerian God of Brewing. Khuzwane, the African god of beer. That's just naming a few! And let's not forget that even the Catholics had Patron Saints of Brewers, like St. Arnold of Soissons, and St. Dorothy of Caesarea, and yes... even St. Nicholas! There were so many that their feasts spanned the entire calendar year! Speaking of feasts... of course there were Gods and Goddesses of food and festivity throughout many cultures. The powers that be WANTED man to eat and drink and be happy. Why, even Benjamin Franklin recognized this in stating "Behold the rain which descends from heaven upon our vineyards, and which incorporates itself with the grapes to be changed into wine; a constant proof that God loves us, and loves to see us happy."
So, whether it was all mythical or not, you work hard and you deserve to drink great beer and eat great food. At Wrath Brewing you can do both, and even take care of that need for festivities with our games and our Karaoke nights. And of course there are those social and beneficial aspects that would even make Dionysus proud.
