Galveston Historical Foundation’s 1877 Tall Ship Elissa Sets Sail for Saint Arnold’s Brewery
Galveston Island, Texas – The Official Tall Ship of Texas has seen some unique ports of call in her day, but never Texas’ oldest craft brewery. Galveston Historical Foundation welcomes the public to a special “History on Tap” on Thursday, May 22 from 6-9 p.m. at Houston’s Saint Arnold Brewing Company, 2000 Lyons Avenue.
Tickets are $25 per person and include two complimentary beers, an Elissa pint glass and a chance to win a daysail on the historic vessel in 2015. Tickets are available at www.galvestonhistory.org or by calling 409-765-3431.
Each ticket holder will also have the opportunity to win a coveted spot on a 2015 daysail of the historic ship. The event also offers the public an opportunity to interact with items from the ship, including the ship’s wheel and wheel box, as well as learn about the histories of both the ship and the brewery with a special introduction by the brewery and GHF. A limited menu will be available for those wanting to purchase dinner from the brewery.
“This is an exciting adventure to meet the people and see the site that makes ELISSA Ale,” states Dwayne Jones, Galveston Historical Foundation’s Executive Director. “We hope to see all our members and supporters from the area come out to celebrate and toast to the great folks at St. Arnolds.”
The brewery, makers of the award winning Elissa IPA, has a long history with the 1877 Tall Ship Elissa. Proceeds from each Elissa IPA sold are donated annually to Galveston Historical Foundation’s Texas Seaport Museum.
