Join us for a tour of the Reading Railroad Heritage Museum in Hamburg then enjoy a beer tasting and light fare at Hamburg’s newest brewery, 1787. Learn about the history of the Schuylkill River Greenways National Heritage Area and how new local businesses like breweries are intrinsicly tied to the health of the Schuylkill. You can’t make beer without water and the Schuylkill River provides drinking water to almost 2 million people. Participants will first meet at the musuem tour then go to the brewery (43 South Fourth St., Hamburg, PA) which is just a half-mile away from the museum. Don’t miss this Heritage & Hops event!
