From the age of antiquity to the modern happy hour, beer has been an important ritual of our social gathering.  But what is beer? how was it discovered? and why are there so many different varieties?  From the Bohemian Massif where Pilsners were born to the Wicklow Mountains in Ireland where the stouts flow, beer has evolved into a bountiful beverage of unique flavors, strength, and aroma. Join us to learn the history of beer and how geology has played a key role in the formation and style of beers that we enjoy today.
