From homebrew to fermentology

Author of ‘Making Beer’ speaks

Tuesday, Oct. 12 at 7 p.m. — CHITTENDEN — William Mares will be speaking at North Chittenden Grange Hall on “From Homebrew to the House of Fermentology.”

Bill Mares began making his own beer 45 years ago, when homebrewing was illegal and there were no microbreweries in America. Today there are over 7,000 such breweries nationwide, and Vermont has the highest percentage of breweries per capita in the country. Mares has written three editions of “Making Beer,” and fathered Vermont’s brewpub-enabling law in the 1980s.

In this presentation, Mares will offer a short history of beer itself, and discuss the American beer revolution, Vermont’s small but significant contribution, and his co-ownership of a brewery.

This talk is free, open to the public, and accessible to those with disabilities. For more information, contact Chittenden Historical Society at 802-483-6471.

“From Homebrew to the House of Fermentology” is a Vermont Humanities program hosted by Chittenden Historical Society.
