RAISE A GLASS TO CELEBRATE ELKHART’S FOUNDER

You can’t clink glasses with Elkhart’s founder, but you can drink to his legacy. 

Iechyd Da Brewing Company partnered with Ruthmere Museums to make a unique beer that pays tribute to the city’s founder, Dr. Havilah Beardsley, Flavor 574 reports. 

The beer, “Dr. Beardsley’s Amber Ale,” was inspired by the earlier opening of the Beardsley House, fall colors and by using hops from the gardens at Ruthmere, according to Flavor 574.
