    I very much doubt I would have got it without your effort.

    Ninkasi is correct!

    Ninkasi is the ancient Sumerian tutelary goddess of beer. Her father was the King of Uruk, and her mother was the high priestess of the temple of Ishtar, or the goddess of procreation. She is also one of the eight children created in order to heal one of the eight wounds that Enki receives. Furthermore, she is the goddess of alcohol. She was also borne of "sparkling fresh water". She is the goddess made to "satisfy the desire" and "sate the heart." She would prepare the beverage daily.

    Wolty's turn.
    Ancient wisdom occasionally surprises. Beer and fertility gods, huh? Well, all my children began with a trip to the bottle shop, so I'd say Ninkasi is absolutely real, checkmate atheists!

    Since no one else is guessing I will suggest 120cm

    I know broadloom has to do with carpet but after that I'm lost.

    I'd like a hint. I have no idea but i'll guess 2 meters, if it has something to do with carpet it might be larger?
