The fifth annual installment of "Homebrewed History" took place Saturday, March 25th at the Old Stone House. The event focused on the Bavarian law, "Reinheitsgebot" - also known as the German Beer Purity Law of 1516, that regulated prices of beer sales while specifying what ingredients were permissible to use in brewing.
Thank you to Dr. Sean Macmillan, an experienced homebrewer, for discussing the brewing process and origins of the historically-authentic recipes used in the event.
Each Homebrewed event focuses on a different historical culture. Previous themes have included Ancient Greece, Colonial America, and the British Empire.
Another Homebrewed History will take place this fall 2017. Be sure to check back for details!
