The Mesopotamian goddess Siris was the patron of beer who is conceived of as a demon, which is not necessarily evil.

Although beer as we know it had its origins in Mesopotamia, fermented beverages quickly spread around the world from Mesopotamia as the drink was shared with kings and rulers.

Siris is considered the mother of Zu. Siris and Zu are large birds that can breathe fire and water.
