Beer and history converge this November at Colonial Williamsburg! 

Join us for an exciting conference featuring beer and history at Ales through the Ages! Beer is likely the oldest beverage invented by man. It has long been valued for its nutritional content and its mental effects. 

Beer played important social and economic roles in ancient Mesopotamia and Egypt. The Greeks and Romans help spread it throughout Europe and eventually to the Americas, and research shows brewing and fermented beverages as an integral part of daily life across centuries, continents, and cultures. 

Join us virtually or in-person on a journey with some of the world’s top beer scholars as they take us on a trip through time and space to follow beer from it primitive roots to its modern form, learning more about our past and our favorite drink along the way! 

Conference attendees can look foward to enjoying lectures and panel discussions with world-renowned authors and brew masters, specially brewed entertainment, receptions showcasing historical brews, and more.

Don’t miss your opportunity to join us for a pint from the past, November 11–13, 2022.
