It's back! Beer you can't find anywhere else, plus food trucks and live music. Join us for the 3rd Annual Noah Webster Real Ale Harvest Festival brought to you by the museum, Harvest Country Store and Harvest Fine Wines & Spirits. New England breweries will create unique casks of Real Ale for the occasion with one minor stipulation: their brew must include an ingredient from Noah Webster's 18th century garden.
