History on Tap: Brews and Bivalves


Join the Virginia Museum of History & Culture and The Nature Conservancy for an evening celebrating conservation, beer and bivalves!

Clean water makes great tasting beer and oysters. Without that crucial ingredient, the quality of both will suffer, and millions of commonwealth residents would be without a cherished beverage and briny treat.

Featuring samples of Virginia’s finest oysters and the beers that complement them, as well as stories from brewers, oyster farmers and conservationists, this event will celebrate these vital components of Virginia’s past and future.

Each ticket includes three 6-oz. beer samples, three samples of oysters, and a commemorative glass to take home at the end of the evening.
