Burnt timber partnership

Upcoming Event at Wright Museum Tells Many Stories

On Saturday, October 20, dozens of visitors to the Wright Museum in Wolfeboro will be treated to complimentary food and beer (21+), as Burnt Timber Brewing unveils‘V for Victory Porter.’

At the Wright Museum, there is always a story behind every event, exhibit, or program, though, and this special ‘beer-fest’is no exception. The behind the scenes story here is shared, as both Mike Culver, museum executive director, and Eddie Michno, Burnt Timber Brewing co-owner, served in the nation’s military.

For Michno, who graduated from the Coast Guard Academy in 2008, the opportunity to work with the Wright Museum is especially meaningful.

“It’s important to continue telling the story of World War II because it affected every American at home or abroad and shaped people’s lives and our status as a nation for generations to come,” he said. “I feel honored to be asked to brew a beer commemorating the Wright Museum.”

After graduating from the Academy, Michno served as Deck Watch Officer on Coast Guard Cutter DEPENDABLE, home-ported in Cape May, NJ for 2 years. He then spent 3 years as a Search and Rescue Command Duty Officer in Juneau, Alaska.

Culver served in the Army for three years in the 60’s. Similar to Michno, he was also stationed in Alaska, although his home port was Ft. Richardson in Anchorage.

Expressing gratitude at learning more about Michno and their shared history, Culver said the backdrop behind the Wright Museum is that the sacrifices made by many Americans in any war is important.

“While we are a WWII museum, we honor all those who served and tell many stories here that go beyond that time period,” he said. “I’m very pleased to have built this partnership with Eddie and his team.”

Regarding the event on October 20, adults (21+) who purchase admission to the Wright Museum on that day will receive one complimentary tasting of beer with additional 12 ounce pours available for purchase.

Paid admission will also enable visitors of all ages to enjoy complimentary BBQ pork ribs and homemade mac and cheese, courtesy of Mill Street Meat Market and Jacob Ivester, Personal Chef.

The event will take place at the Wright Museum in Wolfeboro on October 20 from 12 to 4 pm.
