One of my favorite souvenirs this summer was a Rudesheim Coffee Recipe. Rüdesheim on the Rhine is best known for the many Wein Stuben that line the Drosselgasse.

Did the current image we have of witches (pointy hat, broom, cat, cauldron) come from Medieval female Beer Brewers? Did German Witches Brew Beer?? Were female brewers WITCHES? Or were they victims of world-wide hysteria? There has been some interesting speculation lately, so I thought I’d share the bits and pieces I found. After all, […]
