#37 Jason Hanson – Brew Your Own: The History of Home Brewing in America

From October 11, 2016

From the earliest colonists to the today’s hobbyists, Americans have made their own beer for centuries. These home brewers have, at times, met demand in times of scarcity, thwarted embargoes and prohibitions, kept traditions alive, pioneered new styles, and ultimately given rise to today’s craft beer industry. This talk will raise a pint to this rich history as we explore who these home brewers were, why they brewed their own, and what they brewed.

This will be Jason’s third appearance, and the 3-year anniversary, for Golden Beer Talks!
