ColoniAle 2021 is a beer focused event with a presentation by our docents and a speaker in the back yard of the Tate House overlooking the Stroudwater River. The evening starts at 6:30 PM with an overview of beer related activities in the 18th century followed by a talk by Ben Lisle entitled “Ale for Invalids: Brewing and Drinking Beer Under the Maine Law in 19th Century Portland.”
Ben is an assistant professor in American Studies at Colby College. His current research investigates the way craft beer has reshaped urban landscapes since the 1980s. Lisle also manages the Maine Beer Project (https://mainebeerproject.com/) and writes a bi-weekly beer column for the Portland Press Herald.
Tickets for the event are $25 General Admission, $20 Members. Admission includes a Tate House pint glass and a 16 ounce can of Mast Landing Brewing Company ale. Rain date is September 26th.
This is an outdoor lecture so please bring a lawn chair or blanket for open seating. The backyard can be cooler or breezy in the evenings so please plan accordingly.
