Toasting Our Fermented Past (Sold Out)

Have you ever gazed into a foamy glass of beer and wondered who could have created such a brew? Fermented beverages have had a much longer presence in our world than you may imagine. Kevin Cullen, archaeology associate at Discovery World, will explore the archaeological evidence of brewing beer throughout the world, including a discussion of recent re-creations of ancient recipes. Cullen will also focus on the evolution of brewing in Wisconsin, highlighting the history and archaeology of several of Milwaukee's forgotten breweries and beer gardens.

This event is part of the series, Beer: From Ancient Origins to New Traditions. Other events in the series include The Science of Beer and Beer and Chocolate.
