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 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.
