Presented by Dr. Sean Munger, Historian
From ancient Iran to King Tut’s Tomb, a 10th-century bar in
Ireland and the modern craft brewery, beer has been part of the human
experience since pretty much the dawn of time. The history of this beverage and
its mystique cuts across most human cultures and many nations. This
globetrotting presentation will hit many highlights of beer’s long story,
including brewing in Roman and medieval times, the role of beer in the history
of German immigrants in America, how the Willamette Valley became the center of
the world’s modern hops industry and how Oregon became “Beervana.”
