Academic instruction at Rutgers began 250 years when Old Dutch Parsonage's Frederick Frelinghuysen offered the first tutorials for Queen's College at the Sign of the Red Lion Tavern in New Brunswick in November 1771.

On Sunday visit our "Sign of the Red Lion" Interpretive Center for “The Lure and Lore of Liquor: Tavern Beverages of the American Revolution" with historian and mixologist David Emerson. Many people know that our Revolution was fomented in the famous taverns of Colonial America – City Tavern of Philadelphia, Boston’s Green Dragon, and the Raleigh in Williamsburg. But other than politics, what was fueling the debates between the Sons of Liberty or the Virginia Burgesses? Join historian and mixologist (yes, indeed) David Emerson in a lively exploration of Colonial drinking customs along with a bit of their social and political context. The talk will include discussion of the various types of beverages available to the 18th Century tavern tippler, how they were made, and even some recipes that you can
