Meredith Megan Rebar, owner of Home Brewed Events and Certified Cicerone, didn’t fall in love with craft beer until she tried one of the brews at Zeno’s Pub, a local dive favorited by her fellow Penn State alumni.

“I went to Penn State, which is a party school and I wanted more than was offered at parties,” Rebar says. “I stayed in the area during the summer and discovered an underground bar with great craft beer that had unique, different flavors. That’s when I fell in love with craft beer.”

Rebar’s passion for craft beer led her to become a certified cicerone, the beer equivalent of a sommelier, and is one of 2,700 certified cicerones in the world. She previously worked at Tröegs Tasting Room in Hershey before starting Home Brewed Events.

They offer a range of classes and packages, including private classes in your own home, beer tasting and pairings and a brew-off.

For those who are competitive, they offer head-to-head brewing where groups are split into two to four teams and compete to create the best brew.

This museum promises to share a story that is not quite the one we learned in school. George Washington does indeed make an appearance—you can see the tent that he used as his headquarters in an interactive exhibit—but Museum of the American Revolution promises to tell a tale that is lesser known. From the first shots of the Revolutionary War to the formation of the United States, its mission is to tell the story of everyone from slaves and Native Americans to women who took up arms to fight for the cause.

 

At its roots, Casa Papel is a love story. Owners Cecilia and Nestor Torres are a married couple with a passion for paper. While researching options for their own wedding in 2005, Cecilia was dissatisfied with the offerings and knew she could create something better. After the couple moved from Portland to Pittsburgh and finally settled in Philadelphia, they decided it was time to take the plunge and open a store. They opened their studio in Northern Liberties and have grown year after year.
