March is here! For St. Patrick’s Day and Women’s History Month, Doc discusses the history of Medieval Brewing, which was dominated by women known as “alewives.” He’ll talk about St. Brigid of Ireland, Katharina von Bora, and Hildegard of Bingen and give a brief history of brewing. Plus, Nina tells Doc a surprising fact about herself that even he didn’t know.


Show Notes: Our alewives in this episode are: St. Brigid of Ireland, Katharina von Bora, and Hildegard of Bingen
