Bangor Historical Society ‘History on Tap Unveiling Event’ Set for September 17th

Join the Bangor Historical Society, Geaghan Bros. Brewing Company, Central Street Farmhouse and winning home brewer Jerry Robichaud for the History on Tap Unveiling Event, Thursday, September 17 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the Geaghan Bros. Brewery facility in Brewer.

History on Tap launched earlier this year with a contest asking brewers to submit sample brews based on historic recipes and/or including ingredients that are historic in nature. Brewers in the region answered the call and Robichaud’s Kentucky Common came out on top.

As the contest winner, Robichaud’s recipe will be brewer for a Limited Edition Release by Geaghan Bros. and will be the subject of the September event.

“The evening starts with a social hour, then we move into a Tap Talk session with Jerry and representatives from Geaghan’s about the creation of the recipe and the steps to get it from a small home batch to something that is available commercially,” Bangor Historical Society Executive Director Melissa Gerety said. “We’ll also include a brief talk about Bangor’s history with beer, alcohol and prohibition.”

Tickets for the event are limited. The $35 per person ticket ($30 for BHS members) includes a light meal, a sample of the winning brew plus a selection of other Geaghan Bros. brews and the program.

Tickets are available at and at Central Street Farmhouse in Downtown Bangor.
