Friday Fun Fact

Did you know that August 7th is International Beer Day!?

No only was our beloved Enoch Turner a generous gentleman and advocate for education, he also owned a brewery.

Located at Parliament Street and what is now Front Street, Enoch’s brewery had a stone cellar, a malt kiln, a granary, ice house, stable, kitchen garden, “grapery,” and paddock. At the time, a city plan valued the property at 6,651 pounds (approx. 1.2 million dollars now).

Enoch was regarded as a very giving and compassionate man, which included sharing his beer with his horses at the end of a long day!
