How much do you know about the history of American home-brewing? In this episode of Sidedoor you’ll meet the Smithsonian’s first brewing historian, Theresa McCulla, and learn about the role of women, enslaved people, and immigrants in the country’s complex—and often surprising—relationship with beer. You’ll also meet a new wave of brewers who are working to craft some flavorful history of their own.

Sidedoor is produced by Smithsonian Digital Studios, and new episodes will be available every other Wednesday. Listeners can download the podcast on Apple Podcasts or stream it on si.edu/sidedoor. Sidedoor is also on Twitter at @SidedoorPod, where followers can get an insider look at how episodes come together.
