FREE Humanitini Program at the Heurich House Museum!

Join us for an evening of good conversation, good food, and good beer. The Humanitini is a unique event at which panels of experts engage audiences over drinks. On April 7th, from 6:30-8:30pm, the Humantini comes to the Heurich House Museum to discuss the past and present of Washington, DC’s brewing industry. The mansion itself is an icon of DC beer history. It was built by Christian Heurich whose eponymous brewing company is widely recognized as Washington’s most successful. The House and its museum collection now interprets DC’s pre-prohibition brewing history, immigration history, technological history, and social history.

The evening’s panel will be moderated by Kimberly Bender, the executive director of the Heurich House Museum. She will be joined by historical beer recreationists, Mike Stein and Pete JonesJeff Hancock, president, co-founder, and head brewer at DC Brau; and Garrett Peck, historian and author of Capital Beer: A Heady History of Brewing in Washington, DC. The conversation will explore beer’s roots in Washington as big business imported by German immigrants and its modern cultural resurgence spurred on by craft and home brewers.

The event includes light hors ‘d oeurves, guided walkthroughs of the first floor of the mansion, and beer tastings provided by Right Proper Brewing Company and DC Brau.
