Beer: it’s delicious, it’s nutritious, and it’s inseparable from ideas of the Middle Ages. This week, Danièle speaks with Dr. Noëlle Phillips about medieval beer: who was making it, who was drinking it, and how the brewing industry leans on the medieval world for its marketing today.
Noëlle Phillips is a faculty member in the English Department at Douglas College, and an honorary adjunct assistant professor at the University of British Columbia. You can learn more about Noëlle work on her Academia.edu page or follow her on Twitter @Belladonsah
Her book Craft Beer Culture and Modern Medievalism: Brewing Dissent, is published by Arc Humanities Press.
