Mark your calendars for Saturday, February 25th. Tradition Brewing Company invites you to celebrate “America’s Flagship”. This event is dedicated to celebrating the storied history and protecting her future as we honor the S.S. United States Conservancy, who is working to restore her color and vigor in the 21st century.
This event is open to the public and will place a special emphasis on commemorating and raising funds to help preserve this iconic ship. Events of the day will include artifacts on display from the ship, artwork for viewing and silent auction, both then and now videography of the ship, and live music. The day will be punctuated with a presentation by Susan Gibbs, executive director of the S.S. United Conservancy and the granddaughter of William Francis Gibbs, the S.S. United States designer.
Last, and certainly not least, Tradition Brewing Company is thrilled to release their very first canned beer, Hull 488 IPA, which is named after the very ship being celebrated. All Hull 488 beer and merchandise sales from this event will be donated to the conservancy.
