All About Beer
"Beer is living proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy." Benjamin Franklin
And when Benjamin Franklin was touting the benefits of good beer, he did it at Tun Tavern, built at Penn's Landing, Philadelphia, PA in 1685. At the first meeting of the "Free & Accepted Masons" in 1732, Franklin honorably led the Society of Free Masons as their Grand Master. In 1749, the oldest known existing charity in the US, "Saint Andrew's Society," convened for the first time at Tun Tavern.
