Back by popular demand, the Peabody Essex Museum (PEM) is hosting its third beer tasting event, A Pint of the Past: Ancient and Historic Beer, on Thursday, August 11 at 7:30 p.m. Join PEM curator George Schwartz and Harpoon Brewery’s Nate Heck for this convivial occasion. Explore the world of ancient and historic beers and learn how they relate to PEM's unique art collection.

Sample seven distinctive beers, each with delicious food pairings. For a special treat, PEM has paired up with Salem Beer Works to create a specially brewed ale for the occasion.
