Tickets on sale now for June 2 craft beer event History on Tap

Those who attend History on Tap at Conner Prairie can both sample craft beer from the area’s leading breweries and learn about the history of home-brewed beer.

Staff report
On June 2, adults 21 and older are invited to join Conner Prairie for a one-of-a-kind craft beer event on its historic grounds. More than 20 local breweries – along with several home brewers – will be at the museum to offer tastings, demonstrations and talk about the history of brewing.

History on Tap is presented by the Conner Prairie Horizon Council, the museum’s young professionals group.

Along with these events, guests will also be able to enjoy sunset balloon rides on the 1859 Balloon Voyage if the weather’s good and interact with costumed interpreters ready to join in on the revelry in 1836 Prairietown.

Tickets to Conner Prairie’s 2017 History on Tap event are available for purchase online.

At the Golden Eagle Inn, attendees will even find a historical, 19th-century beer that’s been brewed on-site at Conner Prairie.

“I have found that events are all about the experience and History on Tap offers an environment unlike any other craft beer event in the area,” said J.P. Patterson, Horizon Council’s president. “Attendees always tell us we have a combination of craft beer, history and a setting that’s impossible to replicate.”

Tickets are on sale now for the event, which start at $35 for general admission. Designated driver tickets are $15. All tickets include at least a $5 food voucher. A full dinner buffet will be offered for $10. Tickets can be purchased online.

“History on Tap provides the perfect atmosphere for exploring Indiana craft beer and history,” said Emily Tschuor, community partnership manager with Sun King Brewing. “Not only do you get an exclusive Conner Prairie experience, you’re also supporting an amazing organization.”
