Ancient Beers with Dr. Patrick McGovern

http://phillyhbc.org/ancient-beers-w...rick-mcgovern/

When: Monday June 03, 2013 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Location: Christ Church Neighborhood House (behind Christ Church, 2nd St above Market St, Philadelphia)

Price: $15.00 Presale. $20 day-of Purchase tickets here: http://phillyhomebrew.ticketleap.com...rick-mcgovern/

The first hundred signups will receive a commemorative Philly Homebrew glass.

Dr. Patrick McGovern, one of the world’s leading experts in ancient beverages, will be speaking about his research and aid in the creation of Dogfish Head’s Ancient Ale series. Directly after his speech, Philly Homebrew Club will be serving samples of each of the Ancient Ales including Midas Touch, Chateau Jiahu, Theobroma, Ta Henket, and Birra Etrusca Bronze.

“Dr. Pat,” as he’s known at Dogfish Head, is the world’s foremost expert on ancient fermented beverages, and he cracks long-forgotten recipes with chemistry, scouring ancient kegs and bottles for residue samples to scrutinize in the lab. He has identified the world’s oldest known barley beer (from Iran’s Zagros Mountains, dating to 3400 B.C.), the oldest grape wine (also from the Zagros, circa 5400 B.C.) and the earliest known booze of any kind, a Neolithic grog from China’s Yellow River Valley brewed some 9,000 years ago.
