The Downtown Shreveport Historic District has more than 200 historic buildings spanning the 1860s to the 1950s, says Liz Swaine. And Shreveport at one time had half a dozen small, but thriving breweries, according to the late Eric Brock.

Thus the Downtown Development Authority, Glazer’s Distributing, the Shreveport Regional Arts Council and Robinson Film Center will be pairing history & beer in History On Tap on Thurs, March 20.

Three locations downtown – artspace @ 710 Texas, Central Artstation @ 801 Crockett and Robinson Film Center @ 617 Texas, will be the locations for the event.

At each of the 3 venues, you will be able to learn facts about ten historic buildings and sample ten beers.

The event will be held from 5-9 pm and will begin at Artspace, 710 Texas. This is where participants must go to check in, be I.D.’ed and get their special Passport for a night of activities. This is a 21 and older event, please.
