Beer has been part of American culture since the pilgrims first diverted the Mayflower because they ran out of it. We will survey the evolution of the beverage in the US, including the major characters, the laws, the available ingredients and processes, how it was purchased and consumed and by whom. We’ll explore the hop farms of Madison County, NY, the German-language-only brewer’s meetings in Boston, the era of beer barons, the first widely-distributed style invented in America, the start of a complicated distribution system, Prohibition, temperance maps and much more—all while tasting revived historic examples. Instructor: Kris Butler
