Eighteenth-century women and men drank a lot of beer, rum, and cider and the Founding Fathers were no exception. Join Brooke Barbier, historian and Ye Olde Tavern Tours founder, to hear about Benjamin Franklin, George Washington, and Thomas Jefferson’s appetite for alcohol and the role their imbibing played in the American Revolution. Learn which president served as a wine advisor to three other presidents, who thought rum was the key ingredient for independence, and which Founding Fathers threw the best parties. After you sign up, we’ll send you the recipe for an easy-to-make colonial cocktail that we recommend you drink during the talk. Or grab any other beverage to enjoy--huzzah!
