Serving up a flight of beer history with a little help from our friends.
Toast to the end of the third annual Smithsonian Food History Weekend with us at this evening exploration of the history of American brewing.
Through tastings and four stories about people, migration, and beer-making, explore how brewing techniques and ingredients have moved around the country and inspired today’s resurgence in brewing culture.
The experts (and their world-class breweries) who will join us to serve up brewing history and tastings include:
• Celeste Beatty, founder of Harlem Brewing Company, New York, NY
• Uli Bennewitz, founder of Weeping Radish, Manteo, NC
• An Bui, founder of The Answer Brewpub, Richmond, VA
• Oscar Wong, founder of Highland Brewing Company, Asheville, NC
Tickets are $40 and include: a complimentary Smithsonian Food History tasting glass, beer tastings at all four brewery stations, a hearty plate of appetizers by the museum’s chef, and more activities to be announced soon.
Please note: This event is for guests 21+; valid I.D. will be required to enter.
