 the National Museum of American History's annual beer-focused public program

Last Call: American Beer in a Changing Climate
Friday, November 3, 2023, 6:30-9:00 pm
Smithsonian's National Museum of American History
12th and Constitution Aves. NW
Washington, DC, 20560

From field to glass, American beer is vulnerable to the varied effects of a changing climate. Nevertheless, creative thinkers are making American beer resilient, responsive, and environmentally and socially sustainable.
Join us for a conversation that I will moderate with:
Andrea Stanley, founder of Valley Malt in Holyoke, Massachusetts, which is creating a local malting supply chain for New England farms, breweries, and distilleries; working with grain varieties that improve soil and water; and sourcing 100% renewable hydroelectric power.
Victoria Garza, Latin America Sales Manager at Yakima Chief Hops in Yakima, Washington, and co-founder of the annual “Sesiones del Migrante” beer collaboration, which honors the labor and expertise of migrant Mexican hop workers in the Pacific Northwest.
Denise Ford-Sawadogo, co-owner of Montclair Brewery in Montclair, New Jersey, whose beers feature a rich range of ingredients–many drawn from Denise and her husband Leo’s West African and Caribbean heritages—including fonio, sorghum, baobab, and hibiscus, which are well adapted to warmer climates.
Morgan Owle-Crisp, co-owner of 7 Clans Brewing in Asheville, North Carolina, whose woman-owned and Cherokee-owned brewery’s beers are rooted in Cherokees’ harmonious relationship with their homeland and feature ingredients such as cornmeal, sassafras, honeynut squash, muscadine grapes, and chestnut.
During the event, attendees will enjoy:
8 5-oz. tastes of beer, poured by:
7 Clans Brewing, Asheville, NC
Montclair Brewery, Montclair, NJ
DC Homebrewers, Washington, DC - pouring 2 beers that feature the hops grown in the Victory Garden at the American History Museum
A DMV farm brewery, stay tuned
Small bites
An Objects Out of Storage display showcasing artifacts and records collected from historic Anchor Brewing Co. in San Francisco, days before its liquidation
After-hours access to exhibitions, including FOOD: Transforming the American Table, with "Brewing a Revolution," showing artifacts from early homebrewing and microbrewing history donated by Fritz Maytag, Charlie Papazian, Michael Lewis, Ken Grossman, Kim Jordan, Jack McAuliffe, Bill Owens, and others

My wife and I enjoyed our first visit to Elder Pine Brewing last weekend after a nice mellow hike at the Rachel Carson Conservation park, conveniently located adjacent to the brewery.  The New Zealand style pilsner was great as was the pulled pork sandwich.  It was a little chilly  so we hung inside.  Too bad, because the pine forest setting in back of the brewery was extremely inviting!

Won't be having the pulled pork, but can confirm the rest.

Ender Pine does a lot of styles well, and the forest is lovely.

While that's true, I'm more interested in who is funding their multiple expansions.
