The history of beer: A feminist story (November 10)

We often associate brewing and drinking beer with men but nothing is farther from the truth. Throughout history women were the brewers of this popular beverage. But not only did women brew the beer; they also sold it in their communities, owned breweries, and made important discoveries. Only later, when it became a commercial industry, men took over and shut women out. During the inspiration session of the 10th of November Vera Lippold will talk about the history of beer and how women were important for this industry.

However, you can’t talk about beer without having a sip yourself, of course! Therefore, this inspiration session partly will be a beer tasting session as well. We will taste a few beers from Fortuna Vlieland who sponsored this session. For this, we are not meeting at the X-Lab as usual in Leeuwarden, but in the “Wijnlokaal” (0.81) at Rengerslaan 8. However, if you would like to have High Tea before, you can come to the X-Lab first at 14:00.

The session will be taking place at the locations of Leeuwarden (Wine tasting room, 0.81, Rengerslaan 8), Emmen (room 1080) or Meppel (room 15). Registration is not necessary anymore, but stay at home if you have Covid related complaints, consider a self-test to be sure and try to keep your distance. We take care of the fourth rule: ventilation!
