Now in its fourth year, MOR’s Hops & History program supports the Museum’s Living History Farm. Every month during the summer season, Hops & History brings a lively audience of adults to the Farm by pairing the Gallatin Valley’s brewing past – presented by MOR Curator of History, Michael Fox – with beer tastings from local breweries.We will explore the ways in which early brewers in Montana made and marketed their tasty product. Discover the ways in which early and contemporary brewers contribute to the social and economic vibrancy of our state.
On July 25, we will look back at the history of American prohibition and how it crushed the brewing industry in the 1910s. The recovery from prohibition will be explored and celebrated through the rise of craft brewing beginning in the late 20th century.
