Civic Museum of Regina 1231 Broad Street
Seating is Limited

Dr. Vanessa Mathews, urban geography specialist at the U of R, has set her sights on Regina’s craft brewing scene! As part of her current research programme, Vanessa is examining the extent to which craft beer contributes to local economic development patterns, and the production of distinct place identities and meanings. Starting with historic small batch breweries in Regina and leading through to the contemporary growth in the local craft beer scene, Vanessa’s presentation highlights how the production and consumption of beer fosters community, economic development, and a sense of place. Join Vanessa at the Civic Museum of Regina for an evening of beer, history, and fun!
