Reception June 29, 2017 – 5 P.M.-7 P.M. | Sculpture Garden | Gregory Allicar Museum of Art
A celebration of brewing in Africa and Fort Collins with Maxline Brewing.
Cultures across the African continent have incorporated beer into their respective rituals, ceremonies, and social gatherings for centuries. Much like our local cultures in Fort Collins, the production and consumption of beer is an established facet of building community and often becomes a focal point for engagement in interpersonal exchange. Crossing Communities: Beer Culture Across Africa features a variety of ceramic pots from 27 cultures and 17 countries to showcase their beautifully distinct styles, while highlighting the visceral experience of brewing, storing, and serving beer across the African continent and its parallels with our own beer culture in northern Colorado. This exhibition is organized in collaboration with MAXLINE Brewing. FREE
Maxline Brewing’s commitment to quality malts, hops, water, and yeast matches our passion for brewing enticing beer. We believe a business should support the community, not the other way around. Each member of our brewery family is dedicated to six hours each month volunteering at your local non-profits and sustainable farms. Make Maxline Brewing your own. Have suggestions for a brew? We want to hear them. Is your team playing? We’ll turn on the game for you. Want to take a palate trip? Choose from a menu of local artisan bites.
