Beer Tasting Event at the German-American Heritage Museum
Thursday, February 22
Beer Tasting Event at the German-American Heritage Museum  (Local Societies)
7:15 pm to 9:00 pm

Enjoy a taste of Germany with different kinds of German beer, including limited seasonal specialties, German sausage, potato salad, and pretzels. Explore the history behind each offered brew, socialize and network with like-minded beer aficionados and connoisseurs while listening to traditional German music. Learn about the long history of Germans in the United States, their surprising contributions which go well beyond beer and bratwurst, and the strong connection that exists until today between the two countries. Lively authentic Alpine music will be played by Liab’ und Schneid (http://www.lusmusik.com/index.htm), the Mid-Atlantic’s premier duo for Volksmusik, the traditional entertainment and dance music of the mountain regions of Austria, Switzerland and Bavaria. The key to Liab’ und Schneid’s success: bringing you the energy of the music Alpine “locals” listen and dance to, spiced up with some Oberkrainer classics and timeless hits in the German Volksmusik.

The German-American Heritage Museum of the USA™ opened in March 2010 in a building once known as Hockemeyer Hall.Renovations were completed by the GAHF after acquiring the building in 2008. Located on 6th Street NW in the heart of the old European-American section of Washington, the Museum sits in what is now a thriving commercial neighborhood. Its mission is to preserve, highlight and promote the heritage of Americans of German-speaking ancestry, and their valuable contributions to the birth and development of this country.
