Crossing Communities: Beer Culture Across Africa

Exhibition Website

May 16 1903 - Sep 23 2017

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.
