On Thursday, October 4, Earth Eagle Brewings of Portsmouth will pour its craft beer at the next Beer for History, which features a different brewer every other week at four different events through November 1.

Sponsored by Hoefle Phoenix Gormley & Roberts, P.A. Attorneys at Law, Beer for History takes place in Folsom Tavern (c.1775), an historic tavern in downtown Exeter that once served George Washington.

In addition to craft beer, Beer for History features music, light snacks and some form of historic entertainment, which may include colonial tavern games, colonial trivia, and/or escape room.

Proceeds from Beer for History benefit the American Independence Museum, which is home to Folsom Tavern and the Ladd-Gilman House (c.1721).

In an effort to spread community awareness of Beer for History and provide the public with a “taste” of the series, the museum will participate in a special history trivia night at Shooter’s Pub in Exeter on Thursday, September 27 at 7:30 pm.

Admission for Beer for History events, which take place form 6 to 8 pm, is $15 for members and $20 for non members. Ticket prices include beer (21+), entertainment, colonial tavern games, light snacks and more.

Throwback Brewery and von Trapp Brewing are the featured brewers for October 18 and November 1, respectively. Lexie’s Burger Bus will be present at every Beer for History except for 10/4.
