A Glass of Beer History at the Dyckman Farmhouse

August 3 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

$45

As per the Dyckman Farmhouse Museum Alliance, organizer of A Glass of Beer History at the Dyckman Farmhouse:

This multimedia program will feature the sights, sounds and tastes of 6,000 years of brewing history. Presented by Connecticut River Museum Executive Director Christopher Dobbs, folk musician Rick Spencer, and singer Dawn Indermuehle, the program explores the origins of beer, its growth as a popular beverage, and its evolving place in American society. From ancient civilizations to the modern microbrew craze of today, tastings will reflect beer’s evolution.

Five beers will be tasted throughout the night. These include a barleywine, which Dobbs notes is “considered by many to be the world’s first beer.” Other beers being tasted are a German-American lager, a classic English-style porter, an India Pale Ale (IPA) and local craft label Dyckman Beer.

In addition to the tastings and history, Spencer and Indermuehle will join Dobbs with rousing drinking songs that support the program’s themes. Spencer, an accomplished folk musician, said that “these songs do more than just support the night’s themes; they expand the audience’s understanding and dive into the social customs and concerns around drink.” Both Dobbs and Spencer noted that you cannot just reflect on beer’s history without also discussing temperance and vice.

Ticket ($45) includes admission to the program and a tasting of 5 novelty and craft beers.
