The Past on Tap: Archaeology, Craft Beer and Science Education
February 7, 10:30 am - 12:00 pm
The UWM Alumni Association’s Master Chats Series presents “The Past on Tap: Archaeology, Craft Beer and Science Education.”
This event will feature Bettina Arnold, a UWM professor of anthropology.
People are interested in beer. They are also increasingly interested in the history of the alcoholic beverages they are consuming. Collaborations between educational institutions like universities and museums and the craft beer industry provide an unusual opportunity for public outreach, making various STEAM fields more accessible while actively promoting partnerships between business and the academy. This presentation discusses several recent “extreme brewing” projects both locally and internationally based on the speaker’s archaeological excavations in Celtic Iron Age Europe.
