Beer and brewing have been a part of America since before our nation was founded and the Chicago Brewseum wants to share "the dynamic culture and innovative history of one of the world’s most vibrant industries."
Liz Garibay, Executive Director of the Chicago Brewseum, joins us this week to share more about their mission and projects. Their current exhibition at the Field Museum, Brewing up Chicago, tells how beer transformed the city through the 19th century. Outside of Chicago they've presented an exhibition on Beer + Glass at Seattle's Pilchuck Glass School and more projects are in the works over the next two years.
Chicago Brewseum will host the first Beer Culture Summit October 24-27, 2019 in Chicago. This even brings together an impressive array of researchers and professionals discussing topics such as beer in ancient civilizations; how immigrants impacted American beer; sex, gender, race, and class in beer; and what's in store for beer's history. Attendees will also be able to view the Field Museum exhibition, visit local breweries, and take part in a walking tavern tour.
