A taste of 18th century beer



On Saturday July 20, in the Wade House kitchen, costumed interpreters will brew ginger beer, a soft drink which originated in Yorkshire, England in the mid-18th century and was introduced in the United States in the mid-19th, reaching a peak of popularity in the early 20th century. Wade House visitors will get to experience the brewing process by watching as staff follow an original Victorian ginger beer recipe, mixing ginger, sugar, boiling water, lemon juice and ginger beer plant. Once all the ingredients are combined, staff will allow the mixture to ferment over a few days, turning it into ginger beer, an excellent beverage with a fine flavor to savor on a hot summer day. Guests will recieve a copy of the period recipe to try when they return home. Visitors begin the special experience at the new Wade House Visitor Center and Wesley W. Jung Carriage Museum located at W7965 State 23. Admission includes a tour of the new Wesley W. Jung Carriage Museum, a horse-drawn vehicle ride to the historic area, a guided tour of the stately, 27-room stagecoach hotel, a trip to the Herrling Sawmill to see and feel the rumble of an up-and-down, water-powered saw, and a journey to the blacksmith’s shop.
