Historic tavern in dry town to go wet for 1 day

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.
