Wyman Tavern Brew Fest
August 5, 2017 @ 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm
History meets craft brewing on August 5th at the Wyman Tavern Brew Fest. The event will feature brewers from New Hampshire, Vermont, Maine, and Massachusetts. It will take place on the grounds of the historic Wyman Tavern Museum on Main Street in Keene.
Proceeds from the Wyman Tavern Brew Fest will benefit the Historical Society of Cheshire County, an organization which has been collecting, preserving, and sharing the history of the Monadnock region since 1927. The Historical Society puts on about 150 programs per year such as exhibits, living history festivals, summer camps, teacher workshops, school visits, films, lectures, and field trips. The most important artifact of the Historical Society is the Wyman Tavern, built in 1762, which the Society operates as a period house museum.
Alan Rumrill, the director of the Historical Society of Cheshire County, said, “A Brew Fest seems like a good fit for the Historical Society of Cheshire County. Beer and ales surely flowed in the Wyman Tavern’s Tap Room in the 1700’s, and today craft brewers are reviving the old ways of brewing.”
Music by Brew Ha Ha and the Cold River Ranters
The Wyman Tavern Brew Fest will get underway at 1 pm and visitors will be able to sample the brews until 5 pm.
