The Gregory Allicar Museum of Art is excited to host The Africa Center’s 5th annual Africa & Ale!

RSVP required

All are welcome (21+)


Join us for a network and community building event to discuss issues of sustainability in Africa while tasting African style beers created by local breweries. This collaborative event is an “end-of-year” celebration that honors the cultures of Africa.

The Africa Center aims to celebrate the accomplishments and ongoing work of those that have research and studies in Africa at Colorado State University! The Center has had another wonderful year supporting these activities and looks forward to continued collaboration with those that work towards more sustainable African ecosystems and societies. The center is housed in the School of Global Environmental Sustainability.

The event is free and open to people age 21 and over. A $10 cash donation is suggested to help support the Africa Center, which invests in innovative and interdisciplinary research and engagement that cuts across conventional disciplines to address global environmental and sustainability issues.

Live music from the Fort Collins MARIMBA group will play during the event featuring Zimbabwean traditional and contemporary rhythms on custom African marimbas. Also featured is African-inspired beer from three local breweries including Maxline Brewing, Horse & Dragon Brewing Company and Zwei Brewing Co. Additionally, CSU’s Fermentation Science and Technology program will have beer samples available.

Appetizers from Nyala Ethiopian Cuisine will be provided along with other light snacks. Non-alcoholic beverages will also be available. David Riep, Assistant Professor from the Department of Art and Art History, will provide tours of the African art exhibit during the event.
