Sumerian Beer Events in Chicago, Columbus

Posted March 7, 2014

Last year, Great Lakes Brewing Company partnered with the Oriental Institute at the University of Chicago to re-create the original Sumerian beer recipe using only "ancient" implements. The beer debuted at sold out events in Cleveland and Chicago, and now we're taking our project on the road!

This March, GLBC fans in Chicago, IL and Columbus, OH will have a chance to learn about our Sumerian beer experiment, and taste the results of our hard work. Keep your eye on our News page for details on future Sumerian beer events.
