“American Brewing History: In Your Glass and at the Smithsonian (17121-D)
In The Den @ P&P, on Wednesday, November 15, 8 p.m.
Beer and brewing have always played a central role in America’s culture and cuisine.

What can we learn about American history through beer? How is the museum constructing its brewing archive and who will use it? Join the historian of the American Brewing History Initiative to explore the history of beer and brewing in America and discuss the Smithsonian’s work. During our conversation, we will sample four beers of particular significance to America’s recent brewing past.
Beer samples are included in registration cost. (more…)
