Rivers of Steel presents Happy Hour with Carrie!
On the first Wednesday of each month May through October, enjoy an evening one-hour tour of the Carrie Furnaces site where you will learn about the iron-making process and the impact of the industry on the region and the world. Following the tour, we'll meet for a beer at one of our local partners. We're excited to be partnering once again with Voodoo Brewery Homestead, The Brew Gentlemen Beer Company and Blue Dust. We also have a new beer partner for 2016 - Duke's Upper Deck Cafe.
Tour starts at 6 PM. Following the tour, head over to the brewery/pub for a crafted brew. Food will be available for purchase.
Tickets are $20 when purchased in advance and include an hour-long Carrie Furnaces Tour and one beer. If a tour date is not sold out, remaining tickets will be sold on-site for $25 per person.
The Carrie Furnaces are part of a former industrial site. Heels and/or open-toed shoes are not permitted. This is an outdoor event. Please dress appropriately for the weather. At this time the site is not wheelchair accessible.
