Since the dawn of time, drinking has provided a way for societies to determine character. Alcohol has also long been used as a test of social literacy – a way to finesse any number of social situations.

During Day 2 of the Beer Project, Dr. Michael Bennett, the MFA’s senior curator of Early Western Art, brings to life the museum’s recently uncovered House of the Drinking Contestmosaic and pastimes enjoyed by ancient Greco-Romans. Dr. Bennett will be joined by Professor Travis Rupp, beer historian and brewer of ancient ales from the University of Colorado, Boulder and Dr. John Arthur, beer anthropologist from USF St Petersburg.

As for the actual beer, students in the USF St. Petersburg Brewing Arts program paired with the area’s top brewers to create beers inspired by the MFA’s ancient mosaics. Participating brewers include Rapp Brewing, Flying Boat Brewing Co., Green Bench Brewery, 3 Daughters Brewing, and Mastry’s Brewing Co.

Attendees must be 21 or older to participate.
