Did you know that rattle-skull, syllabub, and bogus were all names for mixed drinks in the 18th century? Join us for this month’s Tavern Talks on Thursday, March 23rd from 7-9 p.m. as we cover the topic of Colonial “Cocktails.” Samples will be available from featured participants including Thistle Finch Distillery, Frank’s Wine, and Greenbank Mills & Philips Farm. Guests can sing along to tavern drinking songs with local Irish band Seven Rings, watch a Colonial brewer at work and more!
Tavern Talks is a monthly experience (not a lecture!) aimed exclusively for adults 21 and older that focuses on unexplored aspects of early American history and culture. Guests will experience history with hands-on activities, food and drink tastings, demonstrations, and more. Tavern Talks takes place at the Chadds Ford Historical Society’s Barns Brinton House, an historic 1714 tavern, located next to the Chaddsford Winery at 630 Baltimore Pike. Admission is $20 for non-members and $15 for members. Tickets must be purchased in advance over the phone, in person or online as space is limited. All attendees must be 21 and older.
