History on Tap

Friday, Jun 17, 2022

5:00pm – 7:30pm

Join the Historical Society on Friday, June 17th from 5:00 – 7:30 pm for our first “History on Tap” event at the Harbor Springs History Museum. This event is similar to our monthly Harbor History Talks, except that during the hour before the lecture guests receive drink tickets to get 4 tasting pours of Petoskey Brewing Company beer. During the beer tasting from 5pm to 6pm guests are also welcome to tour the newly opened exhibit, “Dry Harbor: Prohibition, Gambling and Gangsters in Harbor Springs.”

At 6pm guests will move upstairs for an engaging presentation by author Patti Smith who wrote “Michigan Beer: A Heady History.” Michigan has long been called the Great Lakes State but in the past few decades it has also become known as the Great Beer State. During her presentation, Smith will explain how early immigrants brought distinctive beer styles from their home countries, how early local brewers made their mark, and how the brewing industry consolidated after World War II. Along the way, participants will discover different styles of beer from ales to lagers and learn about the current state of local craft breweries.

Smith’s book, “Michigan Beer: A Heady History,” will be for sale at the event and the author will be available to sign purchased copies. Reservations are required for this event and guests must be 21 or older.
