About the event

Bill Mares began making his own beer 45 years ago, when homebrewing was illegal and there were no microbreweries in America. Today there are over 7,000 such breweries nationwide, and Vermont has the highest percentage of breweries per capita in the country. Mares

has written three editions of “Making Beer,” and fathered Vermont’s brewpub-enabling law in the 1980s. In this presentation, Mares will offer a short history of beer itself, and discuss the American beer revolution, Vermont’s small but significant contribution, and his co-ownership of a brewery. 

Joining Bill will be special guest Seth Barrows from Farmroad Brewing in Bennington to discuss the commercial side of brewing and provide samples of his delicious beer. 

This talk is free, open to the public, and accessible to those with disabilities.
