The History (and Erasure) of Black Brewers
"Despite the overarching image of whiteness. When it comes to beer there is a vast history of black brewing culture. Which like so many things has been largely erased from the history books and cultural consciousness. James bennett the second dove into this for a recent peace in eater. He acknowledges the huge influences of german and irish culture in america but points out. That's not the only source when it comes to beer quoting eater. The ancestors of african americans. They were fermenters. They were really good at making their own liquor and making their own beers and also making wine from fruit says the culinary historian and writer. Michael w twitty one of our african 'isms in fact was producing all of these things and one of the reasons why we did. That was because it was related to our traditional spirituality libation twitty. Ads is the heart of african spiritual worship. He recounts seeing this firsthand on a trip to takhar village in cameroon. They pull out a big ceramic vessel full of their traditional beer. He says and even though a lot of takhar our muslim this is one of the traditional religious practices that they keep alongside islam. What beer-drinking may be nonexistent on friday. Would he notes. You better believe that at social functions to honor youth. Celebrate a marriage or the deceased in the ground. Alcohol is poured out and passed among the elders and quotes alcohol and in many cases. Beer was and is important. Spiritually and culturally to many different communities in africa throughout the ages as european colonizers began enslaving people and forcing them to work on their stolen land. The knowledge and skill sets of many enslaved black people surrounding bruin were exploited quoting again. The prevailing image of enslaved black person is that of someone laboring in the fields were being ordered around the big house but american slavery built in sustained a pretty much every aspect of this american life and that included beer again the west african societies. From which so many bodies were stolen. Were no stranger to the mechanisms of fermentation. We know that. Enslaved africans and african caribbeans were brewing beer or were cultivating hops or other grains. That would have been used in the brewing process. Says theresa mccullough of the smithsonian's national museum of american history. Black brewing skill was no secret. She adds advertisements for enslaved. People who were skilled. Brewers -absolutely wanted posters that identified fugitives as skilled brewers or otherwise involved in the brewing industry. As american as apple pie. Peter hemmings enslaved at monticello was a master brewer and quote but even if their expertise was being used to produce beer many black individuals who were free at the time. Weren't drinking much of it. Part of it was because temperance. Got rolled into the abolitionist movements. Most abolitionists were anti alcohol. Seen it as a toxic influence and a tool of the oppressor now. That's not to say that all temperance advocates were abolitionists. Far from it but most abolitionist were teetotalers. But there is also a practical angle. Bennett explains black. People were wary of being taken advantage of by white people while drunk and also simply didn't have the money or time for drinking while they were figuring out more important matters like getting an education job and securing semblance of safety in a dangerous climate then in the second half of the nineteenth century beer and cider went from being a smaller mostly at home type of operation to a profitable business largely. Thanks to the influence of german immigrants in america and of course now that it was profitable. Black brewers were shut out and being that beer was now more something to be purchased at an establishment like a saloon versus consumed at home. Black people were also often refused service. Then prohibition hits and when it was repealed with many federal regulations in place breweries were fearful of being shut down so they leaned hard into patriotic. Branding the kind of whitewashed stars and stripes apple pie type of america that is definitively white as been it says. Advertising has more to do with what we buy than most of us care to admit and by his accounts that adds up with the consumer trends that we saw throughout the second half of the twentieth century as white flight brought middle and upper middle class white people to the suburbs where they could host parties at home and had a bit of bigger budget a lot of them swapped beer for cocktails and thinking that they could get them back with a beer that had as high as cocktails beer. Companies tried to sell the white suburbanites on malt liquor but the attempt flopped most likely minutes opposes. Because it's something of an acquired taste so then a pivot happened quoting again. How did malt liquor go from garden. Party aspirated two boys in the hood levels of despair. The exact y. Is a matter of law but jane. Nicole jackson beckham diversity ambassador for the brewers association has a pretty good idea. The story i've been able to get is that there was some kind of persistent market research saying that. Urban audiences make more purchasing decisions based on. Abc and that urban audiences tend to buy for volume. She says the decision was made to market malt liquor not as an upscale product but a specifically urban products and to put it in a large vessel boom the forty and quotes

"So thank you all again for being part of the breaking green ceilings podcast. Today where here to talk to you about black women in nature which is an initiative that has been led by three buck women who we have the author of having today starting with nicole jackson. I re- douglas. And then angela mitchell so the purpose of black women in nature is to help back. Women connect with nature through meditation nature hiking and reflection. So i wouldn't start with this first question to y'all which is what role has nature played in your life. Let's start with nicole. Okay so yeah. Nature played a vital role in my life. Does because of growing up in cleveland ohio with ten other siblings being raised by a single parent when i was younger i was in austria here in my life and unfortunately with my older sister on foster carrier sexually abused and was really hard time in my life because i was really really young about five or six. And nature was my go-to during that time in my life to get through at trauma that struggle and trying to more so find myself. And do i wanted to be but also helping other sign their strength to move through similar issues so nature really given me. Hope and motivation to keep moving forward during a lot of arguments are all i can think of is like that's an intense but also relieving story but you found an outlet in nature and i think that's a kind of consistent outlet. Let's go to ivory. What role has nature played in your life out. Say for me. Nature has really represented freedom a sense of playfulness and healing for me. As a kid. I grew up in the rural south of texas and i used to always go out to my mother's house. She had a couple of acres of land. That had been our family bar while. And i just have so many fun memories of just like playing outside the kid running around all creatures not really thinking too much about it. S really having a good time. You mr right making my pies. All of those things were just a sense of freedom. I like we play outside all day. If we could and then i think as i got older i kind of moved away from that and i would say within the last year or so. I've chemist started a return back to nature. I've been in ohio for megabucks six years now and generally when the winter comes up mike. I'm standing side like it's too cold. All candy stay inside and this past year started running outdoors and that was really therapeutic for me often after running. I just felt really energized and brushed in. My thoughts are clear so that was an amazing experience for me than once the pandemic in march i was teaching at a yoga studio in pretty much all the other studios post while it so practicing yoga outside became a thing for me so i've come within this past year. I've kind of made a return back to back that sense of freedom and playfulness that i was able to engage with nature as a kid. So that's kind of been my journey with it. That's really quite good. Imagine y'all playing outside and making those my pies and playing with the creatures worst creatures where you playing with my gosh grasshoppers. I don't know what it was about grasshoppers and high hobbling grasshoppers but me and my sisters love to play with grasshoppers and apparently as a little kid. There was a time that i picked up a snake. It was a very small one. I've got it was a worm. And i was like so excited. And shell my mom and she's like that's so yeah. Lots of interesting adventures outside nicole. Did you play with creatures as well. I was told her. Nerd nature donate any. I could look at watch. Crawl watch bri through things kick at things was definitely my thing to do and i don't remember sharing that as much with my siblings but i think they knew i had something like this bond with nature in a way. They couldn't explain. Because i was always looking divine adventures outside just be alone with nature so anything that showed up. I was really excited buysc. What about you angela. Yeah it's so funny growing up. I can't say that. I was really a nature in disease. Although i did live in anchorage alaska so yeah so if you wanna talk about i mean we were. We were ice skating around mike. The colds to hack. I mean it was just things like that we were. I would say kind of playing with loose. I don't know if you use the word playing. We were out there. And we're probably doing grasshoppers like yeah so that was definitely an experience. I would say that my relationship with nature of really developed as i'm reassured in so colon ivory of heard me say multiple times but for me in nature really helped me through a very painful time in my life so i think similar to nicole. It was a space of healing. And so you've ever been through a painful time you know there's moments where you just feel like you can't breathe and you just want to escape in your my. Where can i go in. So i found myself in those moments in so i would literally just half at time. I can't breathe escapes. i put on clothes. I would just go out. And i won't go to various communist metro parks and so was there that i just found a place of safety and healing. And i just hike and meditate. You know look up at the sky and listen to the words. Just take it all in and i was just reminded that i'm safe and able to just connect with the divine yay. I just really derived a sense of healing from spending that time and nature so it was definitely something that i think as i've matured. It really begins to play just a more important critical role in my life. Yeah i love when you said it created a place of safety and a place where you could connect to the divine. That's something that we don't often think of but at least for me the more expensive nature. The more i've kinda liked questioned the nature of nature. I'm like there's gotta be something bigger than us behind this ray so yes. That's kennels creates a perfect environment for meditation and reflection. Does and i would also say so. Maybe napoleon i would agree with this too. I think being in nature reminds you to present. Ray seat sure there. You're focused on the now. Not thinking about what happened in the past or the future but it ground jew so i think that was something else that i really experienced and then just reminded me just read. Stay in this moment. you're safe. You're okay it's going to be okay so something just.
