Back by popular demand, Fireside Chats continue at Cold Spring Brewery! If you’re thirsty for history, come on in for good beer for a great cause! Gather round the fireplace at Cold Spring Brewery for this free lecture series with Historic Cold Spring Village’s own Deputy Director Jim Stephens.
On Feb. 22 from 4 to 5 p.m., the topic is “Extraordinary Women of New Jersey,” a discussion of women who have been outstanding in their fields. These fine ladies are from, and/or associated with, New Jersey. Then, on March 1, we round up the winter season with part two of “New Jersey and Booze: Perfect Together,” a continuation of our examination of alcohol and its influence on our state and nation from the mid-19th century through Prohibition. What better place to have a lecture on booze than in the cozy and inviting Cold Spring Brewery tasting room?
