Postponed: Tastings & Tales – Remarkable Women of JP

This event has been postponed. Boston By Foot cancelled everything through March and the JP Historical Society is working on a new date. 

Just in time for Women’s History Month, we’ve got stories of local women who’ve stood by their ideals, fought for change and overcame societal boundaries to achieve and exceed in outstanding ways. Jamaica Plain has been home to a wealth of women who have achieved remarkable heights throughout Boston’s history. Socialists, abolitionists, Nobel Prize winners, literary luminaries – there are no shortage of stories of remarkable women to share and toast with a fine Sam Adams brew in hand. Guides from Boston By Foot will tell you the stories of these women while the staff from Samuel Adams pairs them with a flight of beers.

The meeting is actually at The Brewery (Building B) at 31 Germania St., at 7 pm.
