Oct 24 @ 2:00 PM – 3:00 PM
Each year, Newlin Grist Mill hosts a series of presentations that explore different aspects of the site’s unique historical and environmental resources. This year’s “Newlin Series” focuses on foodways, to coincide with the restoration of the 1739 Trimble House kitchen & pantry.

English food historian Marc Meltonville will log on remotely from the UK to present “Brewing at Newlin: An English Ale in an American Kitchen.” He will be discussing an experimental project has been running over the last few years to brew household beer in the kitchen at Newlin Grist Mill. Find out how they made the beer happen, the process of putting together the 18th century equipment, and a little bit of beer history thrown in.
