Dr. Root's Craft Beer Party
September 15, 2017 6:00 pm - 9:00pm
The William Root House Museum & Garden is excited to announce a collection of beers crafted with hops harvested directly from the historic Root House Garden. Inspired by Marietta’s first apothecary, William Root, this new collection of beers was created by Red Hare Brewing Co.
The William Root House is an antebellum home located in Marietta. It is the oldest home in downtown Marietta and one of the only wood frame structures in Marietta to survive the Civil War. William Root was Marietta’s first Apothecary (druggist). Many medicinal herbs are grown in Dr. Root's garden because it’s likely he would have used them in his pharmacy. This includes hops. Hops, which is used to make beer, would have been used in the pharmacy as an herbal medicine to assist with sleeplessness and anxiety.
Admission is $30 per person. Attendees will receive three tasting tickets. A variety of finger foods provided by local restaurants will be available. Guests must be 21 to sample beers. IDs will be checked at the door.
First 100 tickets sold will receive a free souvenir glass!
