With Sacramento Beer Week in full swing, you might think you have a handle on the thriving local beer scene. But what about the rich history of local brewing?
The Sacramento region may have 60-plus breweries in operation in 2017, but its brewing roots run deep.
Monday at 6 p.m. at Oak Park Brewing, 3514 Broadway in Sacramento, James Scott, a reference librarian at the Sacramento Public Library who is known as the “beer historian,” will give a talk on Sacramento’s brewing history. The presentation will focus on beer production in pre-Civil War Sacramento, according to a library press release.
Oak Park Brewing is embracing the theme of the lecture by serving historically relevant beers — think lagers and cream ales rather than super hoppy (and much more modern) West Coast India pale ales.
Never miss a local story.
The event is free and open to the public. The brewery also has a full service restaurant.
