DRINKING: A HISTORY

    Thursday, February 7 at 7:30 p.m.
From our earliest days, brewing has been a part of the American tradition. One of the first fermented beverages brewed in the Americas was ginger beer, which got its start in the Caribbean in the late 1400s and quickly spread throughout the colonies.

Georgia Dunn, a descendant of a British explorer who produced the first ginger beer in the New World, weaves colonial history, family lore and the culinary past to create a fascinating portrait of brewing and living in the Caribbean.

Sample tasting and reception to follow. Co-sponsored by the Darien and Rowayton Historical Societies.

Registration required and seating is limited. Must be 21 or older to attend.
