Allied Arts Beer and Culture Nights

Allied Arts was founded in 1954 under the name of “The Beer and Culture Society.” Almost sixty years later, we still like that name so we’re honoring it with our “Beer and Culture Nights.”

By convening groups of smart, energetic and public-spirited folks in an informal setting and by providing snack food, beer and a hot topic, we hope to inspire free-ranging and uninhibited discussion that will be enormously fun and can lead to civic action.
