Tuesday 11/7, 7 p.m. - How Geography Explains Pilsner… Or Pilsner Explains Geography - Nate Brinson, UCBC Training Coordinator

While Pilsner has its roots in Bohemia, it soon became a sensation that swept the globe. With an emphasis on physical, historical, and regional geography, learn about the beginnings of Pilsner in 1842, how it spread throughout the world, and how different beer cultures responded to Pilsner’s popularity.

Tuesday 9/19, 7 p.m. - From Bee to Bottle - Keith Seiz, National Honey Board

Celebrate National Honey Month by tracing honey’s origin from the bee to a bottle of beer.

In this seminar, attendees will taste multiple rare honey varietals and sample made with honey beers.

Tuesday 7/18, 7 p.m. - Bottles to Bricks: Looking at Remnants from St. Louis Lagering Caves
Beneath the City of St. Louis are remnants of historic lagering caves that date back to as early as the 1840s. Over the past few years CAIRN (Cave Archaeology Investigation and Research Network) has established a collaborative relationship with local grottos and cave research groups, allowing them to visit and make records of several of these caves. Learn about their historical use gleaned from remaining artifacts.
