I'll plump for Aegir, brewer to the gods of Asgard (of course).

Can't be the first though, beer's been around a looong time.

Norse god of parties. Good choice, but we can go further back than the relatively young civilisation that are the Norse.

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.
