The event will include a tour with the master brewer and a short talk by Tim Shaw on Was the Reinheitsgebot German “Purity Order” of 1516 the First “Clean Water Act” or an Early Commodity Price Control?
Abstract: There is an ongoing debate concerning the role of beer, and other alcoholic drinks, as a water substitute in Medieval times and earlier. There are also records of beer as a required component of wages for farm and in some cases factory workers in the 19th century. In this discussion we will consider how beer as a “safe” water substitute and beer for barter or wages has driven the chemistry and diversity of flavor in the beers we enjoy today.
Registration deadline is October 24
