Ever wondered what the common beverages of Colonial America tasted like? Join me for a different type of history lesson! There's no need to walk around the city to experience a new spin on the American Revolution, especially if you're looking for a comfy indoor activity during the winter months. Join me, a certified wine expert and educator, as we taste through a variety of beverages that would have been commonly consumed during Boston's Colonial period. Learn why fortified wines were on the tables of Boston's elite residents, why it was so hard to make wine in America, and the importance of local brewers and alewives. I look forward to sharing some good drinks and conversation with you. Please be advised that our snack may include cheese, nuts, and other common allergens, so if you have a dietary restriction please tell me ahead of time and I will adjust our food selection
