Thanks to a partnership with Iron Tree Brewing, the museum is pleased to debut and feature a brand new beer that will be premiered exclusively at the festival. This first-time release is called the L&M Rifle Ale, inspired my local history right here in Montgomery County, VA. The name is inspired by the Lewis-McHenry Duel fought in Christiansburg in 1808.
