February 22, 2018 - Taverns, Ales and Alcohol on the Piscataqua’s Forgotten Frontier

 7:30 pm (Berwick Academy Arts Center)

Reliable drinking sources, liquid sustenance, and promoters of sociability, beer and ale played an important role in early New England. Archaeologists know this through the many artifacts excavated at the Chadbourne Site and elsewhere in the Piscataqua region. Dr. Emerson Baker, Project Scholar for the Forgotten Frontier project, will discuss these finds and their significance. He will also describe his efforts with Portsmouth’s Earth Eagle Brewings to recreate colonial ales from historical recipes. READ MORE
