Peterborough Town Library, 2 Concord St., will host “Brewing in New Hampshire from Colonial Times to the Present” Monday, Sept. 11, at 6:30 p.m.

Glenn Knoblock’s program on the history of New Hampshire's beer and ale brewing industry will range from Colonial days, when it was home- and tavern-based, to today's modern breweries and brew pubs. Using photos and advertisements, Knoblock will document this changing industry and the state's earliest brewers, includingFrank Jones. A number of lesser-known brewers and breweries that operated in the state will also be discussed, including the only brewery owned and operated by a woman before the modern era.

Knoblock is a scholar and author of more than 20 books. He has served as the main military contributor to Harvard and Oxford University's “African American National Biography,” and he has also written for the Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History. His work documents a variety of subjects in New Hampshire and New England history, including African-American history, historic cemeteries and grave markers, as well as covered bridges, the Kancamagus Highway and New Hampshire's loon population. He holds a bachelor’s degree in history from Bowling Green State University.

The program is free and open to the public. Registration is not required.
