First Thursday: Fettuccine Forum 

Beer Heritage

The Boise City Department of Arts and History has joined the beer-craze sweeping the city. The Fettuccine Forum begins its 2014-15 season with a panel titled "Beer Heritage: Boise's Love Affair with Brewing."

Paul Schoenfelder, recreation manager for Boise Parks and Recreation and a homebrewer, will serve as moderator for a conversation between fellow homebrewer Nick Phillips, who will speak on the art of crafting beer outside of a brewery; Payette Brewing Co.'s Mike Francis, who will talk about the commercial aspects of beer; and Woodland Empire founder Rob Landerman, who will share information about Boise's history with beer.

"Boise has such a long history of beer brewing," said Brandi Burns, history program manager for the Department of Arts and History. "When German immigrants settled here, some of the first businesses they opened up were breweries."

Beer from Payette Brewing Co., food and wine will be available for purchase. This is the Fettucine Forum's 11th season and for the first time its history, discussions will be held in the City Council Chambers in City Hall
