*POSTPONED* From Homebrew to the House of Fermentology

October 14
6:30 pm

Park-McCullough Carriage Barn
Bill Mares and friend with beer
Please note: this event has been postponed due to concerns around the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (Covid-19). We are working with the event hosts to find a new date.

Bill Mares began making his own beer 45 years ago, when home brewing 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.
