Black Powder Tavern and Yards Brewery salute Independence Day in colonial style with “Beers of the Presidents,” a special food and spirits event on Saturday, July 6th featuring Yards Washington Porter and Jefferson’s Golden Ale.
The event commemorates our nation’s independence and supports the Valley Forge Park Alliance, a local charity whose mission is to preserve and protect the Valley Forge National Historic Park.
Historical impersonators Ben Franklin and James Madison will welcome patrons with Franklin providing a special recitation of the Declaration of Independence. Expect patriotic tunes, patriotic cocktails, and outdoor games.
Tavern staff, patrons and volunteers from Valley Forge Park Alliance will be dressed in colonial period attire to raise awareness and funds for the park conservation. A portion of proceeds from the event will be donated to the Valley Forge Park Alliance to support its mission.
