Beer Archaeologist Examines
International History of Brewing

Re-Creating the Past: The Archaeology of Beer will be presented from 2-4 pm Saturday, March 28, at
the Global Village Museum of Arts and Cultures. Travis Rupp, known as the Beer Archaeologist, will
survey the beginnings of beer in the ancient Near East through its development and stylization
throughout Europe. He will explore how beer production and consumption were at the core of ancient
cultures and imperial expansion.

Rupp, the Innovation & Wood Cellar Manager at Avery Brewing Company in Boulder, will also
introduce the Ales of Antiquity Series at Avery Brewing.

The presentation is in conjunction with the Museum’s Main Gallery exhibit, Brewing History: Fort
Collins’ Global Connections. The display, which runs through May 20, is a joint collaboration between
the Museum and graduate students in Colorado State University’s Department of History.
“The exhibition connects the brewing landscape of Fort Collins to the long international history of
brewing,” said Madelyn Newman, a student in the Museum Studies class taught by Assistant Professor
Thomas Cauvin. “In addition to presenting the history of brewing, the exhibit will focus on relevant
topics such as prohibition, homebrewing, the rise of craft beer, and brewing’s environmental impacts.”
The Global Village Museum is located at 200 West Mountain Avenue. The Museum’s hours are 11 am
to 5 pm Tuesday through Saturday. For more information, please visit globalvillagemuseum.org or call
