Putting it Wildly: History of Homebrew

This week we talk about the history of homebrewing in America. We trace its origins back from household chore, to expert skill, and its glorious rise from the (nearly) dead. Lots of factors left their mark on this now-trendy hobby. German immigrants, the Civil War, and things get real weird during Prohibition. Join us this week on the Tipsy Timeline!

We discuss the history of American homebrewing. We go back and start with Colonial America all the way through German immigration, the Civil War, and the Industrial Revolution. Of course it's impossible to avoid Prohibition as well! Sources for this week's episode can be found here:
