Brown Bag Lunch about Butte's Brewing History
12:00 PM
Butte-Silver Bow Public Archives
Description:
The Butte-Silver Bow Public Archives will continue its Brown Bag Lunch series on Wednesday, July 26, with a presentation by Steve Lozar. The Brown Bag talk will be about the very unique history of marketing the beer produced by breweries in Butte beginning in the 1860's.

Steve "Bubs" Lozar was born in St. Ignatius, Montana. An enrolled member and former Tribal Councilman of Salish and Kootenai Tribes, Lozar is also the great-grandson of Slovenian brewing immigrants. A man of many talents, he is a Graduate Anthropologist, legal historic water rights researcher, and the owner of Montana's oldest screen printing and embroidery business. Lozar is a lifelong collector of Montana brewery history and breweriana and a frequent public speaker on all aspects of Montana brewing history. He also plays hockey.

The presentation will begin at noon and run about an hour at the Archives, 17 W. Quartz. Guests are encouraged to bring a sack lunch. Coffee and water will be provided.

Brown Bag Lunches are held the second and fourth Wednesdays of every month. Upcoming lectures will focus topics of local interest. For more information, contact the Archives at 782-3280.
