Culture Connect Featured Event
Beer: Its History, Making, and Tasting: Thursdays, September 27 & October 4 at 7 p.m. and Wednesday, October 10 at 6:30 p.m.
This session will include drinking songs by folk musician Rick Spencer, a short history of the social role of beer and other drinks in 18th and 19th century America by museum director Chris Dobbs, and a few of their favorite period beer and drink recipes.
The second session will be led by Dana Gordon, an avid home brewer. Participants will learn the basics of brewing, including fermentation techniques, hops, and modern recipes.
The final session will take place just before the Beer Tasting on October 10. Participants will meet a brew master and hear the insiders take on the industry and microbreweries. They will then have an opportunity to enjoy the beer tasting, which will showcase several New England brewers, including City Steam and Relic brewing (one of the state's newest breweries). The tasting is made possible in part through Wine Cellars 4.
The fee is $45 per person, and $40 for museum members and Let*s GO! Arts cardholders. Participants must be 21 years of age or older and show a valid ID.
