HANDS-ON BREWING

Step back in time and join the Fort Mifflin team as they brew the wort for Spruce Beer to be drunk by the Continental Army. Beer was so critical to the health of the army that George Washington ordered his quartermasters in 1775 to provide each man “One quart of Spruce Beer per man, pr diem” in order to keep them fit for service during the siege of Boston.

During necessary breaks in the process, participants will enjoy sampling historic beers, a guided tour and musket and cannon demonstrations (or fire a demonstrating weapon after a black powder safety lesson - additional fee applies.)
