What was the first bar in America? That’s a tough one because so many records weren’t kept or were lost over time. However, there are a few things we do know.
We know that there was a brewery set up at the Jamestown Settlement in 1609 and that it was likely the first establishment created for making and serving alcohol of any kind—in this case beer. Breweries of the time—or brew houses as they were sometimes called—could often resemble what we might think of as a pub or café. In fact many pubs of the time served as small breweries.
Was this the case for Jamestown? Since no records exist we have no idea and can only guess.Add a comment
