Underground History: Beer From The Past Lives Again

Paul David Gibson / Fickr

Archaeology is all about trying to better understand how people lived their lives in the past.  It doesn't hurt to try some of their food and drink. 

That's where Travis Rupp comes in; he calls himself a "beer archaeologist" and attempts to recreate some very old recipes for fermented beverages.  As the hot days of summer approach, who better to have as a guest on our Underground History segment? 

Chelsea Rose from the Southern Oregon University Laboratory of Anthropology tracked Travis down for the interview; she joins in the discussion.
