Historic tavern in dry town to go wet for 1 day

Posted: May 04, 2012

It’s been 139 years since they served beer in Haddonfield’s Indian King Tavern.

But that will change Saturday when barrels of Colonial style beers will be tapped at a fund-raiser for the museum and historic site, meeting place of the New Jersey Rebel Assembly in 1777.

Since Haddonfield has been dry since 1873, organizers have obtained a special permit from the state to sell beer to help pay for renovations at the tavern.

Philadelphia’s Yards Brewery is supplying the beer and food will be served.

Tickets are $40 each and there will be three seatings at noon, 3 p.m. and 6 p.m. At 11 a.m., borough officials will taps some of the barrels.

The event is limited to adults over 21. Ticket are available in advance at the Haddonfield Information Center, 2 Kings Court, 856-216-7253.
