Randell Spackman and I ran our Colonial Brewing class at Thornbury Farms which is on the actual Brandywine Battlefield yesterday. We had on 8 students so everyone got to enjoy some good Spruce Beer and try their hands at brewing in the Colonial Manner. It was a real hands on experience.

My goal is to bring history alive through interactive portrayal of ordinary American life in the late 18th Century (1750—1799) My persona are: Journeyman Brewer; Cordwainer (leather tradesman but not cobbler), Statesman and Orator; Chandler (candle and soap maker); Gentleman Scientist; and, Soldier in either the British Regular Army, the Centennial Army, or one of the various Militia. Let me help you experience history 1st hand! View more posts
