Determined to spotlight the various beer cultures around the world, the Haffenreffer Museum Student Group curated an exhibition titled "Brewed for Thought: A Cross-Cultural Exploration of Beer and Brewing." The exhibition will highlight the important role beer has in social gatherings throughout various parts of the world and in various settings including ceremonies, relationships and even in medical treatment. In honor of the Haffenreffer family's gift to Brown University more than 60 years ago, the exhibition will feature objects linked to brewing and beer consumption from a broad range of communities including Bolivia, Peru, Kenya, Nepal, Tibet and the United States. The objects—which homage to the Haffenreffer family's roots as brewers—will provide a context for how fermented beverages have been consumed for the last 2,500 years. The exhibition will be on display through March 2018 in the Haffenreffer Museum of Anthropology, the College Green. Exhibition hours are Tuesday-Sunday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., closed Mondays and University holidays.
