Beer and civilization, they seem to go hand-in-hand! Dogfish Head is proud to sponsor the BEERology exhibit at the Museum of Man in San Diego, California.
Ancient Ales have always been a fascination with the fine off-centered folks at Dogfish Head, so of course we jumped at the chance to join the Museum of Man in bringing you BEERology—an exhibit that brings you stories and artifacts linking beer and culture.
This year long exhibition explores the history of beer and culture through 8 distinct sections…
The Science of Beer
Inca-Gold, Silver, Gods & Kings
Moche The World’s First Growlers
Amazonia Beer from Chewed up Roots?
Mesopotamia A Hymn to Ninkasi
China Royal Tombs well stocked with Beer
Egypt A Desert Awash in Beer
Tarahumara Go up to the Mountain and Drink with God
BEERology will also be hosting tasting events throughout this year long journey…
