Yuletide Cheers & Beers arrives in November!

It’s the most wonderful time for a beer…or is it? It’s the winter of 1777, and the British are occupying Philadelphia. A Red Coat solider provides a unique perspective on this tumultuous time as the tour seeks the comfort of hearty snacks and warming drafts at four cozy pubs.
