History on Tap

The Compleat Cyder at Blue Bee Cider

The Virginia Museum of History & Culture has a large number of cookbooks, ledgers, and diaries that contain recipes for beer, mead, wine, cider, and other beverages.  The “History on Tap” program puts recipes to the test as we partner with local breweries and cideries to reproduce the past.  Past “History on Tap” collaborations include:  Janes Percimon Beer produced by Ardent Craft Ales, The Compleat Cyder produced by Blue Bee Cider, and Queen Bee produced by Black Heath Meadery.
