Ask Real Beer
Hi, I am the brewer at a brewpub in Tacoma, Wash., and our local state museum has a 6
month long exhibit relating to George Washington. They have asked me to try
to come up with any information concerning GW and his homebrewing habit. I
have been unable to come up with any "hard" facts or even any truly
interesting myths. I was hoping you may have some suggestions as to where I
might search. Appreciate any help, I'll owe ya a beer or two!
Thanks, Mike Davis,

From Beer Dave: Be sure to include a $2 bill. It is our only piece of currency to
feature 3 brewers: George Washington, Samuel Adams and Thomas Jefferson.
The best source for hard facts about George's brewing life can be found
at mountvernon.org. Recently they did an in-depth dig at his brewery and
distillery. So they now have even more hard facts for your exhibit.
