The Genealogy of Beer – Allison Singleton, Discovery Center.
Beer has been around for at least 3,900 years, the earliest known recording of brewing and beer. Breweries have a history in Fort Wayne almost as long as Indiana has been a state. With this rich and bubbly heritage, it is only natural to look at the history and genealogy of some of the well-known breweries and brewers in this city. Come learn about beer and perhaps pick up a few tips on learning how to research the occupations of your own ancestors.
