Superbia

One of the seven deadly sins, Pride can transform a person into believing they are above everyone else, bringing them closer to the gods than to humanity. None can be more filled with Pride than Hatshepsut, the Queen of Eygpt who named herself King and went on to become one of the most successful female pharaohs of all time.

Hatshepsut was crowned queen of Egypt at the young age of 12 when she married King Thutmose II. When the King passed away, Hatshepsut stepped in by acting as regent for her stepson. However, Queen Hatshepsut was ambitious. She felt that she deserved the crown for herself, not just as regent but at King. Hatshepsut decided that she would assume the title and full powers of a pharaoh herself. She ordered that she be portrayed as male, so that she would be perceived as the most powerful pharaoh. She began wearing a beard so that she would be perceived as more masculine and therefore more powerful.

Her pride led to great and ambitious escapades and projects, that were extremely successful. She built many great temples, and her buildings were grander and more numerous than those of any of her predecessors. Hatshepsut embarked on numerous trading expeditions and brought back to Egypt vast riches–including ivory, ebony, gold, leopard skins and incense. Egypt prospered under her great reign, and Hatshepsut had become a successful and powerful woman in a mans world. She reigned longer than any other women of an indigenous Egyptian dynasty.

Our Superbia Saison was brewed with the same pride as Hatshepsut. This moderately hoppy, bright golden nectar with a champagne-like effervescence, will taste like a gift of gold brought back from one of the most successful expeditions. Just one sip, and you will be feeling like you’re drinking a beer brewed more for gods than humans.
