Beer & Food Event @
In the 18th century beers & ales were more than just a beverage but an important part of daily cuisine. Wine was reserved for only after dinner, so the colonist enjoyed ales with their meals. Meats from grass feed livestock was tougher than what we have today, making marinating in ales essential for both tenderizing & preserving meats.
Join Chef Walter Staib, host of the Emmy award winning A Taste of History at City Tavern. Enjoy The Flight of the Revolution featuring ales brewed from George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Benjamin Franklin & Alexander Hamilton, try all four for just $12.00. Throughout Philadelphia's Beer Week, Chef Staib will dedicate his daily specials to dishes prepared with these same ales including:
