Event Details:

In 1607, Jamestown colonist Thomas Studley recorded that after their ships departed, “there remained neither tavern, beerehouse,” and so “our drink was water.” This was contrary to the nature of the English. The Powhatan made no alcoholic beverages, nor did most of the tribes along the Eastern seaboard. The Brits had to figure out how to quench their thirst on their own. Join us for this historic program on alcohol in the New World – everything from the fermenting of grains to jugs of whiskey sold in country stores and stills buried in backyards. Samples from Blue Sky Distillery in Smithfield will be offered. Reservations are required. $25 per person.

Location: Isle of Wight County Museum, 103 Main Street, Smithfield, VA, 23430
