Germany’s Liquid Breads – The History of Beer!

EVENT UPDATE: This event has been canceled due to concerns stemming from the spread of the coronavirus and public safety. 

This year’s 100th anniversary of the Prohibition in the USA presents us with the perfect opportunity to hearken back to the legendary history of a revolutionary beverage that changed the world: beer, or more precise, German beer! Once so essential to daily diets that it was referred to as liquid bread, German beer, to this day, is a source of great cultural and national pride. Join German Historian Anette Isaacs, M.A., for a fascinating exploration into the history of this iconic drink that will also include a look at the lucky German brewers who became beer barons in the USA!
