New Tea-Infused Harpoon Boston Tea Party Ale Available at Boston’s Only Colonial Tavern Experience
Jan. 22, Feb. 5 & 19, March 5 & 19 and April 2, 2015

The Boston Tea Party Ships & Museum, which tells the story of “the single most important event leading up to the American Revolution,” is bringing back Huzzah! Tavern Nights by popular demand. For six Thursday evenings in January, February, March and April 2015, from 7 - 9 p.m., visitors and guests are invited into an 18th-century tavern complete with live period music, rustic savory food and beverage amidst a host of important historical Boston residents including Paul Revere, John Hancock and Samuel Adams along with other colonial characters.

Featured at each Tavern Night is the new Harpoon Brewery Boston Tea Party Ale. The Boston Tea Party Ships & Museum teamed-up with Harpoon Brewery to create a new Boston Tea Party Ale in made with Souchong tea, a classic black tea from the Wuyi Mountains in the Fujian province of China, the tea was provided by the Boston Tea Party Ships & Museum. This tea is famous for its very distinctive smoky aroma and is one of the five teas thrown into Boston’s historic waters on Dec. 16, 1773 during the Boston Tea Party. The new Boston Tea Party Ale is only available at the Boston Tea Party Ships & Museum and at Harpoon Brewery until supplies last.

Eighteenth century colonial taverns were social centers that attracted a wide variety of people. Boston Tea Party Ships & Museum’s Huzzah! Tavern Nights are no different offering patrons a chance to rub elbows with Boston’s colonial residents, many of whom played an important part in the Boston Tea Party which took place 241 years ago. The evenings will take place at the Boston Tea Party Ships & Museum in Abigail’s Tea Room (named after Abigail Adams, the wife of America’s second president and Quincy, Mass. resident) overlooking the Fort Point Channel, the actual body of water where the Boston Tea Party took place more than two centuries ago.
