Please join the National Museum of Civil War Medicine (NMCWM) and its Executive Director George Wunderlich at Brewer’s Alley in downtown Frederick for our next Happy Hour.  George will speak about the first draft of the United States Army and Master Brewer Tom Flores will talk about the new First Draught beer. 


First Draught

A Rich Man’s Beer… A Poor Man’s Fight

This Belgian Dubbel style beer uses candi sugar and specialty malts to commemorate the Enrollment Act of March 3, 1863, the first draft held in the United States.  Any men between the ages 20 and 45 were eligible, but those with means could buy their way out for $300.  The complex aroma of the beer includes caramel and toast.  The medium to low hop bitterness disappears into the finish – unlike the bitterness of the poor man who is forced to fight.

Bring a friend, bring the office and share in an actual Civil War experience – drinking beer!


Corporate Exposures will provide a raffle wheel (draft wheel) and you will receive a ticket for a chance to win prizes. Giveaways will include pint glasses, t-shirts, museum membership and more NMCWM Memberships and Merchandise will be available!
