Summer is the perfect time to experience Scandinavian culture by trying new drinks with friends in a fun and relaxing atmosphere. Each July, the American Swedish Historical Museum hosts SmörgåsBeer, which brings people together to experience local and international beers and enjoy Scandinavian food. This year COVID-19 has changed the way we can gather, but not what we enjoy.
Introducing our new version of this classic event, SmörgåsBeer in Your Backyard! This package for two features a live Zoom Tutored Tasting Experience on Thursday July 30th at 6:30pm. Brew Masters and representatives from select companies will discuss their brands, flavors, and inspiration in real time as you sample. ASHM’s Curator will also give people a behind the scenes peek at Museum collection items with a boozy history.
Tickets to the event come with an exciting event bag which includes a six pack of assorted beverages, two collectible SmörgåsBeer tasting glasses, an assortment from Sweetish Candy store in Lancaster PA, a coupon for ASHM’s Gift Shop, a free water ice coupon from South Philly’s Pop’s Homemade Water Ice, and a Scandinavian pub trivia game, all in a reusable Museum tote bag. The first 36 people to purchase also get a bonus bottle of Glogg-toberfest mead from Liquid Alchemy!
Thank you for supporting the Museum in these difficult times. We look forward to toasting with you! Skål!
