SYCAMORE – Stop by the Midwest Museum of Natural History, 425 W. State St., and enjoy the new exhibit, “Cheers! A Brief History on Beer!”

The exhibit, on display until Nov. 18 looks at the history of beer since 4500 BC till present day, how beer is made, and some fun facts about beer such as when beer was first canned and the size of the world’s largest glass of beer.

After learning all about beer, patrons are invited to stop by the Forge Brewhouse, 1330 E. State St., and pick up a bottle of The Armchair Anthropologist, a museum inspired beer.

The Forge partnered with the museum in creating this blonde ale in celebration of the exhibit.

The Forge will donate a quarter of the proceeds to the museum. Beer is available through November.
