Capital Brew Exhibit
Beer brewing has been a part of Sacramento history since Swiss immigrant John Sutter produced home brew at Sutter’s Fort in the 1840s. By 1849, German immigrants recognized there was money to be made quenching the thirst of the thousands of 49ers arriving daily. The story of the brewing industry and its people is an essential part of the Sacramento’s history.

Reclaiming the Past: The Sitka Project
On November 25, 1847, the “little pony boat,” the Sitka steamed out of San Francisco up the Delta, bound for Sacramento. It was crewed by a multicultural/multinethnic team and captained by William Alexander Leidesdorff, an African-Danish entrepreneur and Mexican land grantee. When the boat arrived in Sacramento six days later, it marked the advent of steam power on the Sacramento River, heralding the day when steamboats would routinely ply the waterways between the Central Valley’s Delta towns and the San Francisco Bay Area. The exhibit displays the history of the Sitka and the project to tell its story in Sacramento and African American history. Historian and California State University, Sacramento, emeritus professor Shirley Ann Wilson Moore, author of the recent Sweet Freedom’s Plains: African Americans on the Overland Trails, 1841–1869 and co-director of the Sitka project will be available at the exhibit.
