The Black Roots Of Beer Culture 24

The idea of a craft beer world filled with bearded white guys and fancy pilsner glasses erases a long history of brewing from Black life and culture. James Bennett II joins host Krys Boyd to talk about why beer is often conflated today with a rich, white world and why something as simple as the backyard BBQ is essential to understanding how America chooses to drink. His article “We’re Reclaiming Beer Because It’s Ours” was published in Eater.
