The earliest known brewers in ancient Sumer and Egypt brewed at home, and for centuries, through the monasteries and farms and inns of the Middle Ages, brewing was essentially a cottage industry. As commercial brewing took over, home brewing survived on a limited scale, as individuals committed to the brewer's art continued to craft both traditional and experimental beers. Over the last 30 years home brewing has undergone a serious revival, inspiring amateurs as well as some of the country's best known microbrewers.This year's tasting explores the range of impact homebrewing has in today's world of microbrewing. Mr. Jackson's tutored tasting will include examples of farm beers, monastic brews, beers by microbrewers who started as homebrewers, and other examples the influence of homebrewing styles on the world of beer today. At the general tasting, our regular great selection of microbrews from the U.S. and around the world will be joined by the work of several outstanding Mid-Atlantic homebrewers—as well as a few brewing celebrities showing us their own homebrew efforts.Guests must be at least 21 years of age to attend. Reservations required:$42.00; Museum members, $32.00. Call the Annenberg Box Office for tickets:215-898-3900 between 12 p.m. and 6 p.m.(after February 1st)
