Uncorking the Past: Our Love Affair with Fermented Beverages

Patrick McGovern

Membership Lecture, James A. Little Theater

Thursday, September 11, 2008, 7:00–8:00 pm, Free for SAR members

The history of human kind and civilization is, in many ways, the history of the fermented beverage. Archaeologist Patrick McGovern takes us on a fascinating odyssey back to the earliest experiments with fermentation, which created mind-altering substances, medicines, religious symbols, and social lubricants all rolled into one.
