The Chicago Brewseum highlights history and culture through beer

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.

We also sample All the World is Here, a Cream Ale inspired by the 1893 Chicago World's Fair.  The brew is a collaboration with the Chicago Brewseum, the Field Museum, and Temperance Beer Co.
