The Joy of Alcohol
Hosted by Aqua Vitae Institute, The Joy of Alcohol are monthly free lectures and tastings led by our president Ariela Yankelewitz about the histories, culture and religious beliefs behind Alcohol worldwide.
In these lectures Ariela delves into how we've been programmed to either love or hate alcohol. These lectures start at Abrahamic times, where alcohol was portrayed as both the cause of the greatest sins to man, but also how, are part of the most powerful blessings within the bible. We will explore the use of monks to engage alcohol and how muslims from the middle east stumbled upon the very same creation they were soon to ban. From the histories, we will be tasting wildly popular drinks during those stumbling blocks in an attempt to further understand what was happening and why it was happening.
Make no mistake. These lectures are not all beautiful.The Joy of Alcohol delves into the darkness behind alcohol. From alcoholism and its status as one the world's most abused drugs.
After experiencing the Joy of Alcohol, you will never think about alcohol the same way again.
