Tavern Takeover with the Flower City Beer Choir, August 14th

Jul 24, 2019

BEER CHOIR is back! You can join in the singing and fun as part of the Tavern Takeover at the oldest house in Monroe County on Wednesday August 14th, with The Landmark Society of Western New York, Inc. and the Young Urban Preservationists (YUPs), with Silver Lake Brewing Project.

The Landmark Society’s Stone-Tolan House Historic Site was built in the late 18th and early 19th centuries as a farm, home, and tavern. For one night only, we’re turning it back into a functioning tavern, with beer from Silver Lake Brewing and snacks.. The Tavern Takeover event is from 6:30pm - 9:00pm on August 14th, and the Flower City Beer Choir Band will lead the singalong of classic drinking songs and a few surprises from 7-8pm.
