The 15 BBL brewery was built out in the former Al’s Army Store at 23 N. Orange Blossom Trail [GMap] and will feature a rotating selection of house drafts. They also will have canned 16oz four-packs, limited bottles, and to-go crowlers available for purchase.
The name comes from a 4,000-year-old beer recipe called the “Hymn to Ninkasi,” Ninkasi being the Sumerian goddess of beer. The song is believed to have been written down in 1800 BCE, but is likely much older and is believed to have been passed down through generations of beer makers via oral history traditions. The name is a nod to the civilizations that consumed beer that are no longer around and the dead languages they once spoke.
Deadwords will be open 11 a.m.-10 p.m. Wednesday, Thursday, and Sunday, 11 a.m.-midnight on Friday and Saturday, and closed on Mondays and Tuesdays.
