Prost! Beer Culture and Chicago’s German Immigrants
Thursday, February 21 6 - 8 p.m. Buy Tickets Member: $25 Adult: $35
Historian and Chicago Brewseum founder, Liz Garibay, shares stories of how German immigrants—through industry, craft, innovation and culture—were vital to Chicago’s late 19th-century urban development and to her socio-cultural landscape. Doug Hurst, co-founder and head brewer of Metropolitan Brewing, discusses German-American influences on beer making from the 19th century to today and brings along some beers to try.
Doug Hurst was once offered the choice between home-brewing a batch of beer and writing a term paper. Nearly 30 years later, he’s considered a pioneer in the Chicago craft beer industry. Metropolitan Brewing’s classically brewed German-style lagers - consistent, reliable, and crowd-pleasing - demonstrate his expertise and dedication to craft beer.
