Ramsey County Historical Society Presents

History Revealed: A Toast to History at Waldmann Series
Thursday, September 13, 2018
Doug Hoverson, The Business & Culture of Beer: From Statehood in 1858 to the Early 1880’s
Waldmann Brewery & Wurstery

Free and open to all.

Join RCHS for History Revealed, our program series featuring presentations and tours from the best of local historians, authors and archaeologists, with a wide range of topics drawn from the heritage and traditions of Ramsey County.

The state of Minnesota and the business and culture of beer underwent many major changes from statehood in 1858 and for the next 25-30 years. As settler and immigrant populations flourished and transformed, so too did the beer industry in Minnesota, reflecting new cultural influences.

Doug Hoverson teaches social studies and coaches the debate team at St. Thomas Academy in Mendota Heights, Minnesota. He is associate editor of American Breweriana Journal, an award-winning homebrewer, and a certified beer judge. He is also the author of Land of Amber Waters: The History of Brewing in Minnesota, published by the University of Minnesota Press.
