Beer and Brewing Histories of Women, Community, and Science

The history of beer and brewing has flourished in recent years. The American and global interest in craft beer has spurred this push for new scholarship. In this panel, we aim to explore topics that preceded the craft beer craze. Our papers are designed to speak about some of the overlooked aspects of brewing in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Eliza Canty-Jones (editor of the Oregon Historical Quarterly) will lead the discussion from Portland — which the suds-adoring locals often refer to as Beervana.
