Something’s Brewing. The Art, Science and Technology of Beer Brewing

Posted by Bob Skilnik on March 15, 2007

This is one of those things that seems to have fallen under the radar screen of most beer history geeks, a real shame, especially in a history-laden city like Chicago. The John Crerar Library at the University of Chicago is holding a special exhibit that “…explores the development of brewing, from the ancient Sumerians’ rice-based beverages to the rise and fall of the Chicago brewing industry.”

The exhibit will be featured until March 31.

The info on the Crerar website says this exhibit ends on March 31. The picture below says it ends on March 24. Ignore it. I just called Crerar (773-702-7715) and the exhibit runs through the 31st.

Meet Me At The U. of Chicago, John Crerar Library, March 30

Posted by Bob Skilnik on March 15, 2007

I’ll be yapping about the history of beer and brewing in Chicago while trying to promote my latest books, Beer: A History of Brewing in Chicago and Beer & Food: An American History at the John Crerar Library at the U. of C.

The library has one hell of a history, including getting its start in 1897 on the 6th floor of the Marshall Field Building.
