Bettina Arnold, Anthropology faculty member, Josh Driscoll, Anthropology PhD candidate, and Chad Sheridan, Lakefront Brewery’s Lead Cellarman, were featured in a Lake Effect interview with Bonnie North that aired this past Thursday on WUWM. They discussed the ale-honey braggot reconstructed at Lakefront in August based on paleobotanical evidence from Arnold’s excavations in Germany in 2000, which produced evidence for this alcoholic beverage in a bronze cauldron found in one of the burials recovered at an Iron Age site near the Danube River.
The archaeological context of this braggot and a Nordic grog based on a Scandinavian Iron Age burial brewed by Josh Driscoll will be presented at a Wisconsin Science Festival event in HON 196 from 3:30-4:30pm, Saturday October 22.
