About the event
Hello friends, this June will be historic. 3,900 years ago a Sumerian poet wrote a recipe for beer dedicated to Ninkasi, the Sumerian goddess of beer. This was the world’s first recorded documentation of craft beer. In 1776 General George Washington surprised an unsuspecting group of inebriated loyalist soldiers the morning after Christmas Day, dealing a decisive blow to secure our independence as a nation. 235 years later Port City Brewing Company opened its doors. In honor of these historic events, this month, we are looking at History and how it was shaped by alcohol. It is time for our first ever History Under the Influence Trivia!
The Tasting Room opens at 3 p.m.Trivia starts at 7 p.m. Come match wits with your craft-beer drinking comrades in an effort to attain the coveted title of “Port City Trivia Champion.” Teams are limited to no more than 6 historians. Your host, and unofficial Alcoholistorian Sean, will come prepared with an almanac of answers to all your inquiries of antiquity. It also gives us great PRIDE to announce that we will donate all of the event’s proceeds to the Arlinton Gay and Lesbian Alliance for the event.
We will have Haute Dogs & Fries as our food truck on site, be sure to come hungry
