    The National Museum of Civil War Medicine and Flying Dog Brewery are partnering to bring tales from Frederick’s Civil War nightlife and from its war-time hospital wards to visitors while partaking in the city’s modern-day refreshments. The partnership is highlighted by specials on Flying Dog beers, including SawBones, a beer inspired by 19th century recipes and named for Civil War surgeons.

    Join historian Jake Wynn for a guided, historic pub crawl through Downtown Frederick. This “pay what you please” tour will take visitors through the heart of the city and highlight locations that would have been “must-visits” for Civil War soldiers.

    The tour will gather at the National Museum of Civil War Medicine on East Patrick Street beginning at 2:45 and the tour will leave at 3 PM. Each stop will have specials on Flying Dog brews to go with the stories of Civil War parties and surgeries.

    This will be a pay-what-you-please event, with an opportunity to offer a contribution to the National Museum of Civil War Medicine at the end of the program. Early registration is free and it is required to ensure your spot. Visit the museum's website for details.
