Change is good, right? Well we are mixing up the schedule of events this fall a bit and it promises to be interesting.

Instead of running another hands on brewing class on Black Powder Friday at Fort Mifflin, we are planning a sister program on colonial cocktail making. In fact, I am even started on a companion book to go with the class (likely to be published this Spring). Com join us in Fort Mifflin’s Mess Hall Casemate on November 25 when we will discuss (and sample) punch and three cocktails you would have found in 18th Century taverns. You can even try your hand a mixing these using period tools and measures.

For those of you who still want to be apprentice brewers, fear not, we will be bringing back the hands on brewing classes as well as the Cast Iron Chef in the cooler weather of late winter or early spring.

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!
