Will Siss, author of "Connecticut Beer: A History of Nutmeg State Brewing" (The History Press, 2015) will discuss all things beer on Saturday, June 18 at 4 p.m. Siss, who writes the "Beer Snob" column for the Waterbury Republican-American, will give a lively presentation on Connecticut's rich brewing tradition, from its early roots in colonial taverns, its rise through the 1800s with the advent of refrigeration and pasteurization, its decline during the Temperance movement and Prohibition, and up to today's craft brewing craze. Following the talk, there will be a tasting of various beer styles from Veracious Brewing. You won't want to miss this pre-Father's Day event. 21 and over only, please. Admission: $3 members/ $5 non-members. Space is limited, so reserve your spot at (203) 377-6620 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
