CBI009 Telling the Social, Cultural & Economic Story of NC Through the Craft Beverages Lens with Kimberly Floyd


Kimberly Floyd has a Masters degree in Public History with a concentration in Museum Studies from North Carolina State University. She currently serves as the Site Manager at Zebulon B Vance Birthplace as well as the President and Founder of the North Carolina Craft Beverage Museum.


Kimberly joins me today to explain what the NC Craft Beverage Museum is and the projects and programs currently being planned for the museum. She explains her mission for telling the social, cultural, and economic story of North Carolina through the lens of craft beverages and the project ideas she has planned to educate children on the historical culture of our state. We also share a Booze Clues moment with a “purple port surprise” while discussing some of the unusual and taboo museum attendee behaviors Kimberly has seen while traveling the world and critiquing museums.
