July 20 @ 3:00 pm - 5:30 pm

History buffs and whiskey aficionados, time to unite! Get ready to dive into a unique event celebrating the flavorful traditions of Berks County.

Embark on a journey through the history of whiskey distilling in the area, exploring the world of small farm distilleries with Brad Smith, the Assistant Director at BHC. Discover the heart and soul put into each craft and how these distilleries have shaped the local economy from the 1700s to the present day.

But wait, there’s more! Attendees will savor refreshing summer-inspired and classic drink samples courtesy of Eight Oaks Farm Distillery from New Tripoli, PA.

Mark your calendars for this exclusive experience happening on two Saturdays: July 20th with sessions at 3 pm and 6 pm, and on July 27th at the same times.

Tickets are priced at $20 for BHC members and $30 for non-members, covering the lecture, drink tastings, light refreshments, and access to BHC’s Historical Society Museum.
