Fox’d and Fuddled: The History of Colonial Drinking! SOLD OUT
May 6 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm$35.00 – $40.00
Colonial New Englanders were prolific imbibers, drinking roughly three times as much alcohol as modern Americans. Drinking was not only a means of physical and emotional survival but also the driving force behind the growing popularity of taverns that played a vital role in colonial political and social life.
Join us at Historic Beverly’s 1694 Hale Farm for a “spirited” introduction to the drinking habits of colonial New Englanders. Then be treated to one tankard of craft ale from local brewer Gentile Brewing Company while the raucous and rakish Ambrose Gosling entertains you, performs sea shanties on his concertina, and might just offer you a taste of Madeira and a pinch of George III’s snuff. Huzzah!
