A Woman’s Place Is in the Brewhouse: The History of Beer and What We’ve Missed

A chat on history, culture, and how we can improve our writing and understanding of beer by looking back in time. We’ll hear from Tara Nurin, who wrote a book that explores women’s fundamental yet forgotten role in brewing, and Tiah Edmunson-Morton, an archivist, teacher, and brewing history curator who researches the topic.

Our guests:

Her new book is “A Woman’s Place Is in the Brewhouse: A Forgotten History of Alewives, Brewsters, Witches, and CEOs.”

Tiah Edmunson-Morton: An archivist at Oregon State University, Tiah curates the Oregon Hops and Brewing Archives and explores allied collecting areas for food and drink in the Northwest through content acquisition and access, conducting oral histories, and outreach to industries and communities.
