“Brewing in York” with the York County History Center

February 12, 2022 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm

Author Rich Wagner will present on the history of brewing in York from the borough’s earliest breweries to present day.

Rich Wagner has been researching Pennsylvania brewing history since 1980. In 1990 he brewed at Pennsbury Manor using reproductions of seventeenth century equipment. Two years later he worked with a cooper to make his own system to demonstrate the brewing process of antiquity at historical sites and festivals.

In 1994 he earned a diploma in brewing technology from the Siebel Institute in Chicago and worked in Philadelphia craft breweries over a seven year period. Since his retirement as a high school science teacher, he has devoted his time to writing and speaking. He has given tours of breweries in Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Wilkes-Barre/Scranton, the Lehigh Valley and South-Central Pennsylvania. Rich Wagner has published guidebooks to go with each tour.
