Ramsey County Historical Society Presents

Scott Carlson, Twin Cities Beer

History Revealed Series
June 28, 2018
Thursday, 7:00 pm
Ramsey County Roseville Library

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 Twin Cities witnessed a recent explosion of craft beer breweries and brewpubs, but the region’s beer history reaches back generations. The Minneapolis Brewing Company introduced the iconic Grain Belt beer in 1893, and it remains a local favorite. Fur trapper and bootlegger Pierre “Pig’s Eye” Parrant established a St. Paul tavern along the banks of the Mississippi River in the early 1800s. The area has been home to some of the best-known beer brands in America, from Hamm’s and Schmidt’s to Yoerg’s and Olympia. Today, microbreweries such as Bad Weather Brewing, Summit Brewing and more than fifty others are forging new avenues. Join author Scott Carlson as he offers an intriguing history and guide to Twin Cities beer.
