Historic Beertown, a Blog for Tourists and Locals Alike
Beertown’s first and best history blog tells the history of our community, as well as the exciting stories behind the artifacts in our time capsule around each Quinquennial.
Learn more about our city’s heritage sites – like the Thakiwaki burial mounds, the Bramblethorpe House, and the original B&T Brewery!
Relive thrilling events in Beertown history – like the infamous murder of the Bramblethorpe chambermaid, Teddy Roosevelt’s bully July 4th visit, and rumrunning during the dark days of Prohibition!
Remember, Beertonians who don’t know their history are doomed to repeat it. (Let’s not forget the hops disaster of ’36…)
