EASTON, Pa. - A former president marked the day with a visit to Easton.
Chris Black, better known as John Adams from Easton's Bachmann Players, led a troop of colonial reenactors through the Simon Silk Mill, stopping at Boser Geist Brewing for a pint.
"We're very fortunate that the Founding Fathers thought beer was an important product or commodity to drink," said brewery owner Tom Thomasik who said customers requested a President's Day themed event.
President's Day, a federal holiday, is celebrated on the third Monday of every February and honors George Washington and all who have served as president after him.
