- Tuesday, July 31, 2018 from 5:30pm to 7:30pm
- Museum of the Rockies, Living History Farm - view map
Join us for Brews of the Rockies with Bozeman Brewing Company! When President Carter signed House Bill 1337 into law in 1978, he ushered in a new wave of American brewing that changed the tastes and availability of what we now call craft beer. Discover some of the pioneers in the field and explore how innovation (and expert marketing) created the wonderful world of beer that we enjoy today.
We will also look at Montana State University’s 125 years of contributions to American brewing.
Local Beer, Free History: Now in its fifth year, MOR’s Hops & History program supports the museum’s Living History Farm. Every month during the summer season, Hops & History brings a lively audience of adults to the farm by pairing the Gallatin Valley’s brewing past with beer tastings from local breweries.
In 2018, enjoy a refreshing twist on each evening’s lecture. Led by MOR’s Curator of History, Michael Fox, this year’s programs will be filled with brewing history trivia. Mixed into the talks, participants can answer trivia questions to win prizes from the featured brewery of the month. Bring your competitive edge and sense of humor to this year’s exciting program series.
Age 21+ only. This is not a family event, adults only, please.
Cost: $8 admission plus $2 mug charge for each participant’s first event, reuse your mug each month!
