To the delight of local beer and history enthusiasts alike, the Sacramento History Foundation is pleased to present a unique event titled “Untapped Sacramento History” on Wednesday evening, Sept. 5.
At the special event, adult guests are invited to visit the Center for Sacramento History to indulge in special brew tastings from three local breweries set-up on-site — Ruhstaller, Track 7 and Two Rivers Cider — and the rare chance to take a tour inside the prized collections vault to view some of the brew-related historic artifacts and memorabilia.
Some of the brew-related items on special display include a still-full bottle of beer from the 1910s (approximately 100 years old), a glass chandelier from Buffalo Brewery (that opened in the 1890s and was the largest brewery in the area) and the iconic weather vane that stood atop the same local brewery for decades.
Historic beer bottles including ceramic ones from the 1850s, bottle caps, kegs, spigots and turn-of-the-century advertising memorabilia from a variety of local breweries will also be available for public viewing.
Ed Carroll, local beer historian and author of “Sacramento Breweries,” will be on-hand for the special event and brew tasting.
The unique “Untapped Sacramento History” brew tasting and tour event is from 5:30 to 8 p.m.
Tickets are $35 per adult (ages 21 and over) and include two pints of beer of choice in a complimentary pint glass. Additional pints can be purchased for $5 each.
The Center for Sacramento History is located at 551 Sequoia Pacific Blvd. in Sacramento.
