Heavy Hops Ep. 091: Historiographies (Tara Nurin/A Woman’s Place Is In The Brewhouse)

Tara Nurin is a veteran freelance writer, consultant, lecturer and educator who focuses on the culture, history and business of beer. Her most recent book A Woman’s Place Is In The Brewhouse: A Forgotten History of Alewives, Brewsters, Witches and CEOs (Chicago Review Press, September 2021) covers these exact topics, celebrating the contributions and influence of female brewers,. Our conversation focuses on herstory – history considered or presented from a feminist viewpoint or with special attention to the experience of women – and forces such as archival silences and historiographical biases that have erased women’s voices from brewing history. A Woman’s Place Is In the Brewhouse is an important addition to the collective body of beer history on account of both its well-researched historical focus, and the social questions it raises.
