Historical brewing and the preHistorisch Dorp; part 2

In July 2021 Monique, Frank and I experimented with medieval brewery in our beloved museum preHistorisch Dorp Eindhoven. The goal was not to brew a drinkable beer (although that would have been nice) but to show people how brewing could have been done back then. Based on our earlier research we decided to use hot stones this time.

As some of you might know I am a volunteer at the local history museum. preHistorisch Dorp Eindhoven once started as an archeological experiment, building a house based on archeological research in a probable historical way.

We managed to get our hands on some beers brewed in America! And that’s something, because they aren’t easy to get around here.

If you think being a biersommelier is all about trying the newest and best beers and drinking all kind of nice stuff, think again … Training for becoming a biersommelier puts beer and flavours in a whole new perspective, and unfortunately not all is well in paradise.
