The Proost! series of beer/spirits/history events continues June 22 at the Stephen and Harriet Myers Residence in Albany. Blurbage:

The Albany Distilling Company, C.H. Evans Brewery Company, The Albany Ale Project, and Discover Albany are teaming up with the The Underground Railroad History Project to present "Proost! A Brewed and Boozy Sampling of Mid-19th Century Albany." Moderated by culinary writer and historian Deanna Fox, 'Proost' celebrates the beer and spirits culture. Distiller Johnny Curtain, beer historian Craig Gravina, and C.H. Evan's brewer Sam Pagano will take you back in time with samples inspired by the beverages that early Americans in Albany drank. Learn how these types of alcohol were produced and how they influenced the city's culture and history.
Please join us from 5-6 pm for the open house where you will be able to experience a virtual reality tour of the residence, view the unveiling of new artwork, and participate in interactive theatre readings. There will also be a sampling of period food and nonalchoholic drink prepared by members of the Underground Railroad History Project.

The event will feature a 19th century version of Albany Ale brewed at C.H. Evans in Albany.

Tickets are $23 and available online. Previous events in this series have sold out.
