The Death and Rebirth of the Schuylkill River

  • The Centre Theater 208 DeKalb Street Norristown, PA, 19401 United States (map)

As John Adams once wrote to his wife, Abigail, “I drink no cider, but feast on Philadelphia beer.” 

Join us for an evening of spirits and history, as the Schuylkill River Town Program presents a fact and fun-filled program about the Schuylkill River – from its role as lifeblood of the Industrial Revolution and the “workshop of the world”, to a fiery open sewer, and finally to its recent rebirth as 2014 River of the Year and home to bald eagle and shad. Learn the incredible story of how the river has shaped our community and the nation!

To start us off, we will sample products from Norristown’s Five Saints Distillery and Conshohocken Brewing Company. Free! CLICK HERE to let us know if you can make it.
