Magical Food - Beer
Beer is made from grain and water (and other stuff obviously) so it brings together the elements of earth and water.
Apparently on Samhain Celtic warriors held contests to see who could drink the most beer, believing that the course of action would make them immortal…just like any Saturday night down the pub then…
Don’t tell the blokes but according to historical data…women invented beer.
Beer is a good liquid to use to purify the body, just add a little to your bath water or drink a small amount…yes I did say ‘small’ amount.
The Egyptians believed that dreaming of beer was a good omen.
Beer has long been used as a ritual offering and makes a nice ritual drink when in circle.
