18th Century Beer Brewing Workshop at Schuyler Mansion

Join us! 18th Century Beer Brewing Workshop at Schuyler Mansion

      Did you know that beer was central to 18th century life? It was
      considered a nourishing staple of one’s diet and consumed at almost
      every meal. Consequently, brewing beer was an important skill and
      brewers were known to travel circuits to keep colonial communities
      supplied. In this workshop, the art of these itinerant craftsmen will
      be examined, as well as what ingredients, tools, and processes were
      necessary in transforming grain and water into this important

      Workshop will be held Saturday, April 27, 2013, 11:00 a.m. to 4:00
      p.m. at Schuyler Mansion (Rain date: Sat., May, 4th). Free to the
      public. Reservations required - please call (518) 434 – 0834 by April
      23rd to reserve your place. Participants should bring lunch and dress
      for outdoors.

      Schuyler Mansion, located at 32 Catherine Street in Albany’s historic
      South End, was the eighteenth-century home of Revolutionary War
      Major-General Philip Schuyler (1733-1804) and his family. Beginning
      May 15, 2013, the site will open for guided tours, Wednesday –
