The Birth Of Brewing

Tuesday, October 6th, 2009

Between work, a social life, and no laptop I haven’t been blogging much, but that doesn’t mean I haven’t been busy with this blog. Last month Dr Wort did an interesting guess the brewer post to help emphasize the ignorance of many of what he calls Portlands “Beer Chearleaders”.

The idea intrigued me, especially with all the reading I’ve been doing this year on the history of craft brewing and the history of Americas beer giants (can we call Boston Brewing a giant yet? Or will their creative number work be aloud to stand?). So I’ve spent the last few days cobbling together a short quiz on the birth of Americas craft brewing movement. While it’s not complete the questions are a decent mix of difficulty and contain a little history in the results. Let me know what you think and post your scores in the comments. If this quiz does well I’ll make another.
