The Marine Corps was founded in Tun Tavern on November 10th 1775. Having faithfully served my country for 5+ years as a Marine, I promised my local barber (a former Marine himself) a batch of brew to celebrate #234. Now, although some of the fellows I work with _look_ old enuf to have been there on that glorious day, I have no real reference to they types of beer they may have consumed while drafting up the order.

Anyone have any suggestions and/or recipes to a brew that would be worthy of the label Tun Tavern Lager? I have not done any AG (only partial mash, adjuncts & extracts) so please keep that in mind when suggesting.

You WILL be suggesting, right??? (anything less than SIR! YES SIR! is not acceptable...)


Semper Fi,

I think it is kinda strange how hard it can be to figure out exactly what people were drinking at a time and place in history. If you're willing to pay $25 this book might be useful. Chapter seven is "Brewing in Eighteenth-Century New York and Philadelphia". I worry a bit though because these books are often written for the drinker, not the brewer.

Haven't read it through yet but it looks useful:

Brewing In Colonial America - Part I

edit: making progress http://www.amazon.com/Sip-Through-Ti.../dp/0962859834 That book looks pretty cool, I might need a copy.

Poor Richard's Ale

* 4 pounds Light (Pale) or Extra Light Dried Malt Extract (DME)
* 2 pounds 6-row
* 2.5 pounds flaked corn
* 1.5 pounds Biscuit
* 1 pound Special Roast malt
* 1/8 pound Black Patent malt
* 8 ounces molasses (blackstrap is fine)
* 2 ounces Kent Goldings hops (30 and 15 minutes)
* English or Scottish ale yeast (Wyeast 1968 or 1728, respectively)

This is a reconstruction of a period tavern ale created for the 300th anniversary.

Alternatively, you could do a Duvel-style Belgian Golden Strong Ale and play on the word Teufelhund instead of Duvel.

Also, Tun Tavern Lager would be a bit of a misconception since they didn't brew lagers back then (at least intentionally).

Otherwise, david42's got the right idea.
