GREENSBORO, NC (January 10, 2023) – Learn about brewers and brewing in the Triad from the 1700s through prohibition and into the craft brewing boom of today with the Greensboro History Museum at 6 pm, Tuesday, January 17 at Oden Brewing Company, 802 W. Gate City Blvd. Meet the authors of the book North Carolina Triad Beer: A History as part of the museum’s By the Book series.
Local beer historians Richard Cox, David Gwynn and Erin Lawrimore narrate the history of the Triad brewing industry, from early Moravian communities to the operators of nineteenth-century saloons and from Big Beer factories to modern craft breweries. The authors cofounded Well Crafted NC (www.wellcraftednc.com), a project focused on documenting the history of beer and brewing in North Carolina through historical research, oral history interviews with industry professionals and the collection of records from modern craft breweries.
