The William Root House Museum & Garden is excited to announce a collection of beers crafted with hops, fruit, and herbs grown in the historic Root House Garden. Created by Red Hare Brewing Co., this limited release of beers will only be available during a special beer tasting at the Root House on September 14th.
The oldest home in downtown Marietta, the c. 1845 William Root House is one of the only wood frame structures in town to survive the Civil War. The home was owned by Marietta’s first apothecary, William Root. William would have grown many medicinal plants for his pharmacy in his garden, including hops, which would have been used as an herbal medicine to assist with sleeplessness and anxiety.
