Proost/Cheers! Dutch-English Drink Hybrids of the 1700s
Saturday, January 27th at the Ten Broeck Mansion
Time and Admission Fee TBA
England may have claimed Beverwijck from the Dutch and renamed it Albany in 1652, but Dutch culture and tradition maintained a steadfast hold in the colony for generations to come - and no where is this melding of culture more obvious than in the favorite food and drink of early New Yorkers. Join Craig Gravina (Albany Ale Project) and John Curtin (Albany Distilling Co.) on a journey through time and explore the Dutch-English drink hybrids of 18th century Albany. Bring your taste buds along - intrepid imbibers are invited to taste an authentic batch of flip, a mixture of beer, rum, and sugar heated with a red-hot iron. Local (more modern) selections will also be available for a tasting. (Attendees must be 21+ and show a valid ID to participate in the tasting.)
