January 2023

Dear Members and Guests,

Please join us as we begin our 75th Anniversary Year with a visit to the

Württemberg State Museum in the Altes Schloss (Old Castle)

in downtown Stuttgart to see the new Exhibition:

BERAUSCHEND (Tipsy)

10,000 Years of Beer and Wine

Saturday, 14 January, 2023, 14:30 hours

The interactive exhibition displays over 250 objects showing the history of alcohol consumption from the stone age to the present, and how strongly this consumption is anchored in our daily lives. The emphasis focuses less on the technical aspects of alcohol production, but rather emphasizes the role that beer and wine play in the social context, both past and present, highlighting the cultural-historical role of alcohol and the consequences of alcohol consumption for individuals and society.
We will enjoy guided tours in English, and (
depending on attendance) in German.

Following the tours we will walk across the Schlossplatz to the Brauhaus Schönbuch Brewery Restaurant, Bolzstr.10, Stuttgart (www.brauhaus-schoenbuch.de,Tel: 0711-722 30 930), where we will enjoy an à la carte dinner in a fitting atmosphere, rounding off the day with fun and good cheer!
