A mythological inspiration

 

Ozgur is of Kurdish origin from Mesopotamia. The name of the brewery, as well as some of its values, are inspired by Sumerian mythology.

Once upon a time: a sharing of knowledge

 

According to Sumerian mythology, one day the god Marduk got angry with his wife Zarpanit (also known as Beltia). In order to make her jealous, he sent his angels to find the 500 most beautiful women in the world. By the time the angels come and go, the two gods are reconciled. Marduk then told the angels that the women were no longer of use and that the angels could take them home. But the women were so beautiful that the angels did not resist their beauties and brought them back to Mount Zagros and mated with the women. This was the first sin committed by the angels. The angels also shared the celestial knowledge with these terrestrial women. That is to say, agriculture, botany, astronomy, metallurgy, medicinal plants, etc. And this was the second sin of the angels. As a result of this second sin these angels were sent away from paradise and are now called fallen angels. It is thanks to the knowledge shared by these fallen angels that we have been able to develop barley agriculture and therefore beer! Starting from the history of beer, we chose the name Les Anges Déchus (the Fallen Angels)  and our logo which symbolizes all this knowledge brought back by the angels.

 

Sumer our emblematic beer

 

The organic craft brewery les Anges Déchus is directly inspired by the origins of Sumerian beer. Ozgur loves history and in the course of his research he discovered the existence of a Sumerian-era clay tablet or a beer recipe. He did not need more to try to create his original recipe with the same ingredients: wheat, barley, date, fig, coriander and cardamom. He took more than 2 years to make this recipe. To make it all look like the old days, he uses a stoneware fermenter. Thus, was born the emblematic beer of the Fallen Angels which is none other than Sumer.
