Tavern Talks: Mind Your Pints and Quarts

On Thursday, March 15th from 7-9 p.m., “Mind Your Ps & Qs” with this month’s beverage-focused Tavern Talks! Raise your cups with St. Benjamin’s Brewing and Brandywine Branch Distillers and join in the competition as to who can give the best toast. Learn about small beer and the original homebrewer, the housewife, from historian Dr. Clarissa Dillon. Author of Brewing in Delaware, John Medkeff, Jr., will also provide historical context behind your favorite tasty brews. Finally, weigh in to the debate as to what “Mind Your Ps and Qs” really means! Tavern Talks is a monthly experience (not a lecture!) aimed exclusively for adults 21 and older that focuses on unexplored aspects of early American history and culture. Guests will experience history with hands-on activities, food and drink tastings, demonstrations, and more. Tavern Talks takes place at the Chadds Ford Historical Society’s Barns Brinton House, an historic 1714 tavern, located next to the Chaddsford Winery at 630 Baltimore Pike. Admission is $20 for non-members and $15 for members. Tickets must be purchased in advance over the phone, in person or online as space is limited. All attendees must be 21 and older.
