A celebration of brewing in Africa and Fort Collins with Maxline Brewery, Sculpture Garden | Gregory Allicar Museum of Art
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 Brewery.
