Virtual Event: Germany’s Liquid Bread – a Refreshing Look at the History of Beer!
Saturday November 21 @ 2:00 PM - 3:15 PM
This year’s 100th anniversary of the Prohibition in the USA presents us with the perfect opportunity to hearken back to the legendary history of a revolutionary beverage that changed the world: Beer, or more precise, German beer! Once so essential to daily diets that it was referred to as liquid bread, German beer to this day is a source of great cultural and national pride.
Join German Historian Anette Isaacs, M.A., for a fascinating, virtual exploration into the history of this iconic drink that will also include a look at the lucky German brewers who became Beer Barons in the USA.
Anette Isaacs, MA, is a German Historian and Public Educator who has presented hundreds of programs on more than 30 different topics (all pertaining to her native country’s history, politics, and culture) in the Chicagoland area and in South Florida. Born and raised in the Rhine Valley region near Frankfurt, Anette received two scholarships for academic excellence which allowed her to attend Emory University in Atlanta and the University of Vienna in Austria. She then returned to her native country for her Graduate Studies and completed her Master’s Degrees in American Studies, Political Science, and History at the Freie Universitaet in Berlin. After relocating to Chicago, Anette built a thriving career in academia and became an adjunct faculty member at the lifelong learning departments of Oakton College, the College of Lake County, Harper College, the College of DuPage, and McHenry County College, all located in Illinois. She currently is also a popular instructor at Florida Atlantic University’s Osher Institute in Boca Raton and recently was invited to present her programs on Germany at the Lifelong Learning Departments of Ivy League’s Dartmouth College and “Public Ivy’s” William and Mary in early 2021.
