Default Beer Gods

Have I ever mentioned how much I love beer? I really, really do. I found a list of Beer Gods and I figure, out of that list, I'm going to become a worshipper of Ninkasi, cause not only do I get beer but she also has the power to satisfy human desire. Seems like a win/win to me. Now I just need to convince my employer that as a Ninkasi worshipper I need to maintain a certain level of inebriation.

Don't forget to mention to your employer that you will require additional break time for those frequent trips to the bathroom as well.

Remember - you don't own beer, you only rent it.

i down with Tezcatzontecatl. first, it's just a cool name - that is, if you can say it. likely depends on how many beers you've had.

second:

"In the Aztec tradition, Tezcatzontecatl is the God of pulque (a traditional alcoholic beverage made of fermented juice of the century plant, and similar to beer). He is also associated with drunkenness and fertility"

lol. wonder why those two things are associated

Yasigi for the win

In certain African cultures, Yasigi is the Goddess of beer, dance and masks. Her statue portrays her as large-breasted female holding a beer ladle while dancing.

I mean come on a large breasted woman dancing whenever she is not brewing

I think we've got us a making for our own religious war. Though we'll probably have all drank too much beer to show up.
