AGS Oktoberfest: Eat. Drink. Learn.
At the Goethe-Institut Washington, 1990 K St NW, Washington, DC
Join us for this year's AGS Oktoberfest, where Marymount's Mark Benbow will discuss "DC's Brewmaster: Christian Heurich and the Immigrant Experience." From 11 a.m. to noon, Dr. Benbow will offer a lecture on Heurich's experiences as an immigrant to the United States in the 1860s and 1870s. How did he assimilate, and what parts of his German heritage did he maintain? Also, how did he experience the World Wars as a German in America later in life? The lecture will be followed by a catered lunch with local brews, and then we will reconvene for a moderated Q&A, where we will learn how Heurich convinced housewives to buy beer, the surprising history of the beer can, and more!
