Beer historian Douglas McDonnell, a grandnephew of the German immigrant family that founded Tacoma's longest-operating brewery, will talk about Heidelberg (nee Columbia) Brewing Co. at The Henderson House Museum in Tumwater on Thursday. There'll be a slide show, too.
McDonnell knows his beer and his history. Here's a story I wrote last year about McDonnell and his brewing research.
