This week, "Art and Soul" is about the culinary arts. 89.1 WEMU’s Lisa Barry is joined by her regular co-host for this segment, Jessica Webster, and community “connector” Patti Smith talking about the history of beer in Ann Arbor.
Known as TeacherPatti, Patti Smith hosts a number of events around Ann Arbor. She's planning to soon resume her "Hops and History" beer tours, presenting interesting history of beer in Ann Arbor.
She talks about a recent mural uncovered on the wall of the former "Peaceable Kingdom" store (pictured above) in downtown Ann Arbor with a sign from the first beer hall in Ann Arbor.
She also talks about the new Edelbrau Brewing Company on Ellsworth in Ann Arbor, where they make and sell a beer based on a recipe from the 1800's.
