Join Poplar Forest for an afternoon dedicated to the pursuit of happiness and the enjoyment of one of Mr. Jefferson’s favorite beverages. Discover new brews from more than a dozen local and regional craft breweries and cideries. Pair your pints with local food, shop for works by local artisans and vendors, and enjoy performances by local musicians on Mr. Jefferson’s south lawn.

The Thomas Jefferson Craft Beer Tasting is held on the south lawn of the Poplar Forest plantation, rain or shine. Because this is an adult event, there are no children’s activities scheduled. Outside food and drink are not allowed. Guests are invited to tour Jefferson’s cherished octagonal villa at a discounted rate.
