Drinking History Talk: Ginger Beer in the Americas External Event Page
The Mariners' Museum and Park   Organization Web Page
Newport News, Virginia
From our earliest days, brewing has been a part of the American tradition. One of the first fermented beverages brewed in the Americas was ginger beer, which got its start in the Caribbean in the late 1400s and quickly spread throughout the colonies. The beverage can trace its roots back to Sir Thomas Harriott, a scientist and mathematician who, during the 1585 Roanoke voyage, is the first of the British explorers to record making beer in the New World. Harriott’s descendants settled throughout the Caribbean and over the subsequent centuries became one of the leading families in the salt-production industry in the Turks and Caicos Islands. They reside in the Caribbean to this day. Georgia Belk, a 13th-generation descendant of Thomas Harriott, has been working to keep island traditions alive by bringing traditional fermented ginger beer back into the mainstream. In this enlightening talk, Ms. Belk interweaves colonial history, family lore and the culinary past to create a fascinating portrait of brewing and living in the Caribbean.
FREE for Museum Members; $5 plus $1 Museum Admission for guests.

Exhibitions

Sat, February 3 - Mon, December 31, 2018
Sailor Made Exhibition External Event Page
Newport News, Virginia
This new exhibition features more than 60 items made by sailors or artisans at sea. For centuries, sailors have used their leisure time to create objects and artworks that document life at sea, commemorate historic events or simply celebrate the extraordinary skill of the maker. Scrimshaw ? carved or engraved whale ivory or walrus tusks, made by whalers ? is one of the most well-known, sailor-made arts. Over hundreds of years, many began additional hobbies using materials they had on hand to fill their time while traveling the oceans. Visitors to the exhibition will see works of art, scrimshaw, and decorative knotwork, commemorative and household items that will provide a glimpse into the daily lives of those who made their livelihoods on the sea.
Free with Museum admission.
