VIDEO: The Smithsonian’s Newly Hired Beer Historian

NBC Nightly News features the Smithsonian’s newly hired Beer Historian, Theresa McCulla, calling her the “Queen of Beers.” You might remember the news that Smithsonian was hiring a full-time beer historian going viral late last year; it’s cool to see this happen, and for an accomplished woman with a doctorate from Harvard get the job.

The above video is from ABC news about the job opening, which was made possible by a grant from the Brewers Association.

Below is the new NBC Nightly News segment featuring the newly hired Beer Historian.
