Join us at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History for “Last Call: ¡Salud! to American Latinos in Beer.” Hosted by the American Brewing History Initiative in collaboration with the National Museum of the American Latino, Last Call will explore the past, present, and future of American Latinos in beer, in celebration of the recently opened Molina Family Latino Gallery at the National Museum of American History.
Latinos represent a diverse and vibrant thread among the nation’s brewers and beer lovers. Many of these brewers reach for a variety of ingredients with Latin roots—prickly pear, piloncillo sugar, tamarind, guava—as they create new beer styles. Building taprooms and communities that look, sound, and taste innovative, inclusive, and delicious, they are writing the next chapter in American beer history. Join us as we raise a glass to say, ¡Salud!
Participating breweries: Mujeres Brew House (San Diego, CA); Casa Humilde Cerveceria (Chicago, IL); Dyckman Beer Co. (New York, NY); and DeadBeach Brewery (El Paso, TX). Liz Garibay, founder of the Chicago Brewseum, will moderate the conversation.
Event will include beer samples and small bites. You must be 21 or older to purchase tickets and attend this event. IDs will be checked upon entry.
The American Brewing History Initiative is made possible through generous support from the Brewers Association, the not-for-profit trade association dedicated to small and independent American brewers.
