Seattle Brewing: Craft, Culture, and History
Over the course of more than a century, Seattle brewers and their customers have created one of the nation's singular brewing cultures. A rich blend of resources shaped this story: the fragrant hops that grow in the surrounding region; a sense of identity rooted in geography and cuisine; and a brewing community that flourished via dedication to ideals of creativity and professional mentorship. As a result, Seattle changed the course of American brewing history while simultaneously writing its own story.

On December 8, the American Brewing History Initiative of the Smithsonian's National Museum of American History comes to Pike Place Market to lead a discussion about Seattle's brewing history. Our conversation will explore the stories and history of craft brewing in the city with a farm-to-glass approach, featuring a multi-generational panel from perspectives of craft brewing, home brewing, and agriculture. How do contemporary brewers and growers incorporate a sense of history into their work? In their view, what distinguishes the brewing culture of the Pacific Northwest? What does it mean to be an artisan, or craft, producer today, and in the future? Come listen, contribute, taste, and enjoy.

Guest Speaker Panel:
Dick Cantwell, Brewer, co-founder of Elysian Brewing Co.
Charles and Rose Ann Finkel, founders of Pike Brewing Co.
Annie Johnson, Master Brewer-in-Residence, PicoBrew
Representative from Skagit Valley Malting

Panel moderator: Theresa McCulla, Ph.D. Historian, American Brewing History Initiative
