Four Seacoast breweries — The Portsmouth Brewery, Smuttynose Brewing Company, The Redhook Brewery, Earth Eagle Brewings are collaborating on the creation of three historical beers that will debut at a tasting event on May 3, from 5pm-7pm, on the museum grounds.
The tasting features pours from traditional cask-conditioned firkins in the tap room in Pitt Tavern, marking the first beer being served in the historic space in hundreds of years. A more contemporary draft version of each beer will also be available for tasting during the event.
Chefs Evan Mallett of the Black Trumpet, Susan Tuveson of the Acorn Kitchen and Brent Hazelbaker and Taylor Miller of The Green Monkey will create “small plate” offerings to complement the beers, using local ingredients and spring harvested herbs, lettuces and vegetables from the Museum gardens, under the direction of John Forti, Curator of Historic Landscapes and Slow Food Seacoast advocate. There will be informational booths and access to the “Tapping Portsmouth” exhibit throughout the event.
The Tapping Portsmouth Tasting event is open to the public. Tickets are $40 ($35 for Strawbery Banke Museum members) and are available online at the Strawbery Banke website: www.strawberybanke.org.
