This month’s History Happy Hour springs into action with a look at honey and mead!
Join us as we welcome Kim Floyd and Jeff “Puff” Irvin for their presentation, “A Friend in Mead is a Friend Indeed.” They will look at some of the history and significance of mead as well as some of the science that goes into the process of producing the beverage. Kim Floyd is the director of the North Carolina Craft Beverage Museum, and Puff Irvin is the Director of the Craft Beverage Institute of the Southeast at Asheville Buncombe Technical Community College.
This presentation will be available via Zoom and Facebook live. The livestream will also be available at Depot Street Brewing in Jonesborough. Come and learn the history of some of your favorite beverages at a local brewery. If you prefer to view the program online, the Zoom login information is available on Facebook and the Heritage Alliance website. You can connect directly with the program via Zoom or watch the live stream on the Chester Inn’s Facebook page. This program is free and open to the public!
