Want to Buy Beer from the Colonial Brewmeister?

Help us build a Tavern and Brewery.

Perhaps it the pandemic or years of working a job that while I am good at it, I really don’t love but next year, we are taking the plunge and building a new business. In 2026 America will celebrate its Semiquincentennial (250th Anniversary of the signing of the Declaration of Independence). We want to be ready with a new new gathering place for loyal patriots (and an occasional Tory) to celebrate this grand event. We will be building breweries and a tavern.

To date, we have only raised a few dollars but if you are willing to help fund the seed capital by Visiting our Go Fund Me page and invest in this enterprise we can make this happen faster. Rather than a donation, please consider this an advance purchase. Denotations of less than $250 will be honored as vouchers for future purchases at the tavern or taproom. Keep your receipts.

Our Vision

In 2020, chef Staib announced he would close the City Tavern in Philadelphia. This leaves a huge void for those who like to step back in time and enjoy a meal and a drink fully immersed in the 18th Century splendor of our city. Yes, there are a few places you can still go in Boston, Wilmington, Williamsburg or perhaps Savanah but no longer in Philadelphia.

As we sit on the cusp of the United States Semiquincentennial in 2026, we want to recreate a true Colonial Tavern experience at the Brandywine Battlefield. We will have a true 18th Century Tavern experience for our visitors complete with hearty food, bold wine, beer and spirits


What Will Make Us Different?



All of our beers are brewed using 18th Century methods and recipes. Each is inspired by an event or person from the American Revolution and each tells a story of the founding of our nation. >> Oh, and many will continue to be brewed AT HISTORIC SITES OR DURING REENACTMENTS! <<


Tavern for Living History



Patrons in 18th Century attire will be entitled to a discount on their meal and a free colonial beer! We want everyone who visits to feel like they have stepped back in time to between 1760 and 1801!



The Breweries

We will be creating TWO BREWERIES

  • A 18th Century demonstration brewery for classes and special brews
  • A 21st Century sanitary brewery to produce the same beers for sale.

Special Programs

Throughout the year, we will use this venue for various interpretive programs including 18th brewing and cooking classes, lectures on significant events in local history, and Jeffersonian Dinners.
