Iechyd Da and Ruthmere Museums team up to make local ale

Later this week, you can raise a glass to the city of Elkhart’s founder. 

Iechyd Da Brewing Company teamed up with Ruthmere Museums Campus to make a unique brew paying tribute to Dr. Havilah Beardsley, according to a newsletter from Ruthmere. 

Chip Lewis, brewmaster at Iechyd Da, used hops from Ruthmere Gardens to create Dr. Beardsley’s Amber Ale — a malty, fall-colored beer, according to the newsletter. The inspiration behind the beer, according to the newsletter, was the Havilah Beardsley House opening to the public as a museum. 

The ale will be served at Ruthmere’s annual fall concert series, which kicks off Friday, Oct. 9. 

The concert series runs through the end of November. Call 574-264-0330 for tickets. 

As a reminder, Iechyd Da is closed Oct. 5 to Oct. 12 for vacation, according to its website
