A Weekend of Beer Brewing and History


Stop by the 1753 Bachmann Publick House for craft beer from our friends and co-sponsors at Weyerbacher Brewing. Built in 1753 and enlarged in 1762 and 1827, the beloved site served as a tavern which provided locals and travelers with sleeping rooms and public gathering, dining, and drinking spaces. We are pleased that Weyerbacher Brewing will offer Last Chance IPA and Belgium Style Triple Merry Monks ($5 per) to the public (ages 21 and older with ID).

Also featured will be music, historic tavern games, and tours with costumed interpreters. Guests will especially enjoy being able to sit at tavern tables to soak up the atmosphere of our 1753 tavern room.

On July 28th at 1 pm, Dr. Scott Gordon (Lehigh University) will explore life in the Moravian settlement of Christiansbrunn, established two miles west of Nazareth in 1749. Originally a farming community of mainly single men, in 1757 authorities sent young boys to learn trades such as beer brewer, tailor, shoemaker, and scribe. Find out how the mysterious community evolved and eventually disbanded.

Program is located at the Sigal Museum. Free with museum admission or $5 for program only.
