This collection contains a series of interviews conducted in 2015 and 2016 on the business of craft brewing in the Mid-Atlantic region of the U.S. The collection includes interviews with brewers and brewery owners from Delaware, New Jersey, Maryland, and Virginia.

Thomas Morris brewer's log

Accession: 2647

Thomas Morris (1774-1841) was a fifth-generation descendant of Anthony Morris, who established Philadelphia's second brewery in the late seventeenth century. The Thomas Morris & Co. brewery operated from 1812 until 1829. In this volume, Morris records the mix of ingredients and measurements, such as the specific gravity of each brew. Every brewmaster would keep such a log, although surviving examples from the early nineteenth century are very rare.

Dates: 1820-1827
