Course Description

While this month’s responsibly distanced Oktoberfest festivities conjure images of light, golden lager, pretzels, and lederhosen, alcoholic celebrations have a long tradition across the world’s diverse cultural landscape.

How do today's adult beverages compare to the nectars of ancient gods and emperors? Raise a glass to the original oenophiles and bygone beer snobs from the foundations of fermentation in China and Japan to the lauded wines of the Silk Road. Art historian and beer archaeologist Lucas Livingston leads us on a journey across Asia and the Pacific Islands exploring the traditions of fermentation and drinking culture and the marks they’ve made on our modern world.
