Nothing beats a cold beer on a hot summer day — especially on Father's Day. Concord Museum hosts a special "dad's day" beer talk and tasting at the historic Wright Tavern on Sunday, June 16, 3-5 p.m.

The conversation with Mike Smith, author of the New York Times bestseller "The Comic Book Story of Beer" and head brewmaster for Aeronaut Brewing Co., will share pithy, insightful stories into the history of the "world's favorite brew" from 7000 B.C., to today's craft-brewing revolution.

After the talk, sample a selection of beers from Aeronaut's tap room.

Admission $10 for museum members, $15 for non-members. Books will be available for purchase and signing. Register online at, or call 978-369-9763, ext. 216.
