How an Association Helped Put Craft Beer in the Smithsonian

A new exhibit opens this week in Washington, D.C.

If your association (along with the field it represents) has a lot of history, you might want to give a museum a call to help preserve it for posterity.  Just ask the Brewers Association (BA)

Since 2016, BA and its subsidiary the American Homebrewers Association (AHA) have been collaborating with the Smithsonian Institution’s National Museum of American History on a new exhibit, “Brewing a Revolution,” to tell the story of beer, with a focus on homebrewing and craft beer.

“The history of brewing in the U.S. is a story of immigration, urban change, technological innovation and evolving consumer tastes,” the museum said in a press release announcing the showcase, which opens Oct. 25 within the permanent “Food: Transforming the American Table” exhibition.
