East End Libraries Present: Black Brewers and Distillers

May 10 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Join us for this event in celebration leading up to Juneteenth!

A History of African Americans in Brewing and Distilling explores and delves into the impact that African-Americans in distilling and brewing have made in this country. The talk will explore the stories of enslaved women brewers and enslaved men who distilled for their owners without recognition, Black women moonshiners across the country during Prohibition, the incredibly creative mixologists of the 1800s who created drinks we still partake of today, and also spotlight current day mixologists, brewers, and distillers that are changing the face of spirits today.

A Zoom meeting ID and password will be emailed to all participants 15 minutes prior to the start of the event.
