(KUSA) Beer archaeologist. Yeah. That's a thing.

Travis Rupp is known as Avery' Brewing's beer archaeologist, but also as the lecturer in Classics, Art History, and Anthropology at CU-Boulder.

Rupp travels all over the country, and world, researching ancient civilizations--and their beers.

The recipes he finds are then recreated at Avery Brewery.
