Historical Brewers

I found this article on who Thomas Jefferson’s brewer was to be fascinating an illuminating.

Because of course Jefferson had a slave to do that work. I had honestly never thought about it before, which is one reason I liked that article so much. History can’t just be about who won: It also needs to tell us about the people who allowed others to win.
