Last Call

The Smithsonian Food History Weekend Last Call

Serving up a flight of beer history in America with a little help from our friends.

Saturday, November 3, 2018 • 6:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.

Order a California Common beer in DC or a New England IPA in Florida; the hops in either may hail from the Pacific Northwest. In today’s America, beer styles, ingredients, and consumers travel coast to coast. In such a connected world, how much does the notion of “region” matter to American beer? As it turns out, it matters quite a lot. Join us for an evening of historical conversation, brewers, and beers rarely enjoyed in the District.

Participating breweries include:

•    Bow and Arrow Brewing Company from Albuquerque, New Mexico
•    Cajun Fire Brewing Company from New Orleans, Louisiana
•    New Glarus Brewing Company from New Glarus, Wisconsin

•    Scratch Brewing Company from Ava, Illinois
