Drink and Learn at the American Independence Museum

Early one morning in 1789, President George Washington stopped by the Folsom Tavern in Exeter, New Hampshire, to enjoy a light meal served by the Folsom family themselves. Many notable events have happened in the tavern’s 240-year history and it has been repurposed many times. Today the space — refurbished to its original tavern motif — serves as a historic space for events at Exeter’s American Independence Museum.

One of those events is the popular “Beer for History” series. The third annual series kicks off in September serving Neighborhood Beer Co. brews and it continues into October with Portsmouth’s Earth Eagle Brewings, North Hampton’s Throwback Brewery and von Trapp Brewing of Stowe, Vermont. Each event will include games, music, food, history and, of course, beer.

“This event is perfect for folks who simply love a good beer,” says Emma Bray, museum executive director. “It’s also fun for history lovers, as we’ve worked unique history programming into the event in creative and fun ways.” Visit independencemuseum.org/beer-for-history for tickets ($15 for members and $20 for not-yet-members) and more information.
