Garrett Peck - Capital Beer: A Heady History of Brewing in Washington, D.C. ♦

Mar 22 2014 1:00 pm

The author of several local histories, Peck is also a tour guide and has been the inspiring presence at P&P’s seasonal beer-tasting events. His latest look at how Washingtonians quench their thirst goes back to 1796. The region’s first brewery produced a heavy British-style ale. Later, German immigrants served up lagers. Prohibition changed all that, and today’s craft beers have taken the beverage in yet new directions. (History Press)

Beer and wine will be available.
