Ales Through The Ages Returns!
You don’t set up shop on the The Edge of Colonial Williamsburg if you don’t have a passion for the history of beer. As such, we were thrilled to hear about the return of 𝓐𝓵𝓮𝓼 𝓣𝓱𝓻𝓸𝓾𝓰𝓱 𝓣𝓱𝓮 𝓐𝓰𝓮𝓼! The last time this conference was held, VBC hadn’t even opened its doors or taps yet (talk about history). We were fortunate to host a pre-opening reception for attendees in 2016 — and this time we’re ready to play an even more active role in 𝓐𝓵𝓮𝓼 𝓣𝓱𝓻𝓸𝓾𝓰𝓱 𝓣𝓱𝓮 𝓐𝓰𝓮𝓼 ’22!
In fact, our Brewmaster teamed up with CW’s Head of Historic Foodways to create a release just for the occasion! Keeping Brown Ale is an original 18th century recipe brewed with Frank Clark, aged in Oak Barrels with Native Virginia Wild Yeast. This limited edition release will be served at a post-conference reception here at the brewery on Sunday, 11/13. We’ll be closing early at 5 pm that evening to welcome attendees and speakers — and we’ll be tapping additional historic & rare beers developed in partnership with CW from Alewerks Brewing Company, Billsburg Brewery, Carillon Brewing Co., & Precarious Beer Project.
Attendees of both the conference and Sunday’s reception will be able to hear from some of the world’s most renowned beer historians, authors, & brewing professionals…along with a Historians on Tap pop-up…while also enjoying plenty of brews. If you’re interested in beer, history, beer history, or all of the above: we encourage you to join the festivities at 𝓐𝓵𝓮𝓼 𝓣𝓱𝓻𝓸𝓾𝓰𝓱 𝓣𝓱𝓮 𝓐𝓰𝓮𝓼!
