BostonTalks Happy Hour: What's Brewin'

  • WGBH 1 Guest Street Boston, MA, 02135 United States (map)

This month, we’re talking brews: beer, coffee, tea and… music!

Boston Tea Party Ships & Museum’s Josiah George takes us back in time to the days of brewing and throwing tea overboard into the Boston Harbor.


Ajiri Tea founder Sara Holby explains how the lives of women and orphans in Kenya are being improved through the tea and coffee that are purchased and brewed in Boston.

Adam Ritchie’s band The Lights Out released its album on a can of Aeronaut Brewing Co. beer. That’s right—drink a brew and discover new music at the same time. Adam explains this journey.

Matt DeLuca, head brewer at Castle Island Brewing Co., talks about brewing beer and using failure to the company’s advantage. Additional speakers to come.
