Historical Dinner Series: The Battle of Clouds

We’re excited to continue our Historical Dinner Series on Tuesday, August 20, 2019, with a focus on the little-known follow-up to the Battle of Brandywine, called The Battle of Clouds.

Our speaker, Chris Reardon, will explain what happened after the Battle of the Brandywine and how this battle in the Great Valley area was shaping up to be another Brandywine for George Washington. Skirmishing broke out in two different places around the battlefield and Potter’s Militia stationed near the Boot Tavern nearly captured Hessian Colonel Carl Von Donop. Find out what happened to Washington and his 10,000 troops situated on a strong position on South Valley Hill on September 16, 1777.

During the event, we’ll be pouring Yards Brewing Company’s Thomas Jefferson Golden Ale and George Washington Porter.

Light appetizers will be served at 5:30 p.m. Dinner orders will begin at 6:00 p.m., and dinner will be served around 6:30 p.m. View menu here.

A Q&A session will follow with complimentary coffee and mini desserts.

The price is $45 (tax & gratuity included), seating is limited and reservations are required. Call (610) 293-9333 to book your spot with us today.
