Dad�s day beer tasting

This Father’s Day, Sunday, June 20, Michie Tavern will be offering a special Father’s Day Beer Tasting at the General Store from 1pm to 4pm. The tasting will present beers from our own Starr Hill Brewery as well as Yards Brewing Company out of Philadelphia. Featured Starr Hill brews will include Pale and Amber Ales, The Love wheat beer, and Jomo lager. Selections from Yard's will include Ales of The Revolution: Poor Richard's Tavern Spruce, General Washington's Tavern Porter, and Thomas Jefferson's Tavern Ale, which supposedly based on an original Jefferson recipe. The event is free and open to the adult public.

While you’re there with Dad you can also check out the Tavern's hearty lunch buffet: Southern fried chicken, hickory-smoked barbecue, marinated baked chicken, black-eyed peas, green beans, stewed tomatoes, mashed potatoes with gravy, cole slaw, baby beets, homemade cornbread, biscuits”Šwell, we know Dad won’t leave hungry!

Michie Tavern is located just a 1/4-mile from Monticello. Hey, you could also combine the beer tasting with a tour of the new rooms at Monticello. See this week’s cover story.
