Join us for Part 3 of this 3-part series exploring Colorado's history of beer, you even get to have a drink as a part of each program! We'll gain insight to the history of homebrewing, celebrate women in brewing and dive far back into history with ancient ales. Admission for each program includes the lecture and a flight of beers to enjoy during the program. Come on down and crack open a cold one with us!
Travis Rupp, beer archaeologist at Avery Brewing Company and Instructor of classics and art history at the University of Colorado Boulder, takes you on a journey through the history of beer. He'll reveal the origins of beer in Europe and the Middle East and the beginnings of beer in early America. Learn what beer was like during the life and career of George Washington, and try a sampling of Avery’s Ales of Antiquity. Travis will tell you about his upcoming plans for the Ales of Antiquity Series based on his world travels in pursuit of beer's history.
