Hops grown in Marietta's c. 1845 William Root House Garden will be used in a limited release of beers produced by Red Hare Brewing Company. 


MARIETTA - The William Root House Museum & Garden is excited to announce a collection of beers crafted with hops, fruit, and herbs grown in the historic Root House Garden. Crafted by Marietta's Red Hare Brewing Company, this limited release of beers will only be available during a special beer tasting at the Root House on September 14th.

The oldest home in downtown Marietta, the c. 1845 William Root House is one of the only wood frame structures in town to survive the Civil War. The home was owned by Marietta's first apothecary, William Root. William would have grown many medicinal plants for his pharmacy in his garden, including hops, which would have been used as an herbal medicine to assist with sleeplessness and anxiety.

WHAT: Root House Craft Beer Festival

WHEN: Friday, September 14, 2018 6:00pm - 9:00pm 

WHERE: William Root House Museum & Garden; 80 N Marietta Parkway NW, Marietta, GA 30060

TICKETS: The first 100 tickets sold will receive a commemorative beer glass. Admission is $35 per person. Tickets can be purchased online at RootHouseMuseum.com/Beer. Attendees will receive six 6 oz. drink tickets. Complimentary food samples provided by local restaurants will be available. Space is limited! Must be 21 or older to sample beers. IDs will be checked at the door.

ABOUT THE WILLIAM ROOT HOUSE MUSEUM & GARDEN: Owned and operated by Cobb Landmarks & Historical Society, the William Root House Museum & Garden offers an authentic look at life for a middle-class Georgia family during the 1860s. The simple frame house is more typical of its time and place than the grand plantations and columned mansions popularized by Gone With the Wind.

In August 2011, Red Hare started selling craft beer throughout the state of Georgia and in 2012 became the first craft brewery in Georgia to can their beer.
