The correct answer appears to be brewing. As the folks at Brown’s Brewing Co. tell it, “Women have been brewers of beer since the time of ancient Sumeria -– around 1800 B.C. The women of Brown’s Brewing Co. are coming together to honor women in the beer industry from ancient to modern times.”
To mark this, the brewpub will hold “Women & Beer,” an evening of conversation and tastings beginning at 6 p.m. Wednesday, June 15.
The event will include a sampling of Brown’s ales and lagers, paired with cheeses made by local female cheese-makers, a brewery tour and a discussion on the anatomy of beer, the origins of the craft, and “Gender Studies In Beer: An Herstorical Perspective.”
Tickets are available at the brewpub host desk or online, for $18 per person or $16 per person with groups of two or more. The brewpub is located at 417 River Street. Phone: (518) 273-2337.
