Ale Through the Ages at Discovery World!

Headed out to Discovery World tonight to learn about Ale Through the Ages: Power Drinking and Power Dressing in Iron Age Germany.  I will try to get a writeup on it posted some time tomorrow.  I hope they let me take notes and pictures.

Best of all, in two weeks I get to take home what we brew tonight!

This special brewing program will recreate the ancient beer of the Iron Age Celts who lived in southwest Germany more than 2,000 years ago. Featuring UWM professor of Anthropology, Dr. Bettina Arnold, who will discuss recent archaeological excavations in Germany that have yielded evidence of brewing beer; highlighting the important social and political role it played. German scholars on ancient textiles will also be on hand to display the intricate textiles from these pre-Roman sites as unique markers of status.
