Bringing together some of the region’s finest craft brewers, including Stowe, Vermont’s von Trapp Brewing, which recently kicked off the series, Beer for History takes place in historic Folsom Tavern, built in 1775.
As for the next Beer for History, Co-Founder and President Nicole Carrier said they will bring Campfire Smoked Robust Porter, Heidi Go Seek Oktoberfest, Spicy Bohemian Jalapeno Pilsener and a fourth beer to be named later.
“We are thrilled to once again be part of the American Independence Museum’s Beer For History,” she said. “Throwback was founded, after all, with a nod to history where women were the brewers and the beer was made using local ingredients and served in community-oriented pubs.”
Expressing appreciation for Throwback Brewery’s return to the series, museum Executive Director Emma Stratton said their participation has special significance.
“Folsom Tavern was run by Widow Folsom and her daughters at one point in its long history,” she said. “It it really incredible to see this thread of strong, business savvy women played out through history in our series.”
Other events in the series welcome Sea Dog Brewing (10/24), Tilton Brothers Brewing (11/7), and Bad Lab Beer Co. (11/21). Sea Dog Brewing will provide food at each event, which will also include colonial-inspired live music and games.
“If you want to learn a little bit about local history and enjoy yourselves in a family-friendly colonial tavern, Beer for History is for you,” added Stratton.
Tickets for each event are $15 for members and $20 for non-members, while youth (under 21) are $3. Ticket prices include beer (21+), entertainment and light snacks.
