Colonial New England was awash in ales, beers, wines, cider and spirits. Everyone from teenage farmworkers to our founding fathers imbibed heartily and often. This cocktail culture reflected the New World’s abundance of raw materials: apples, sugar and molasses, wild berries and hops.

Get the taste and feel for Historic New England as author, Corin Hirsch explores the origins and tastes of the favorite beverages of early Americans. Hirsch takes you back in time to learn about multiple drinks of historic New England with a tasting, lecture, and book singing on Saturday April 7th, 5:30pm.
