INDIANAPOLIS (Oct. 27, 2021) – Indiana Landmarks and the Athenaeum Foundation are partnering to serve up a triple bill in November, offering tours of the Athenaeum—one of Indianapolis’ most beloved landmarks—and treating attendees to beer and German food.
Open to people 21 and over, the Nov. 18 and 19 “Bier & Building Tours” will combine information about the history and architecture of the Athenaeum with fun activities, glimpses into hidden spaces, and stories from the building’s past. Originally known as Das Deutsche Haus, the Athenaeum was built during the 1890s to serve as a clubhouse for Indianapolis’s German immigrants.
Tours last approximately 75 minutes and depart from the entrance to the Rathskeller Restaurant. Attendees should arrive 10 minutes prior to their tickets’ tour time. It should be noted that the tour requires trips up and down sets of stairs, so attendees who need accommodations for a more accessible route should contact Indiana Landmarks prior to the tour. All tour participants will be required to wear coverings over their mouth and nose at all times during the tour, except when actively eating or drinking.
Tickets for the Bier & Building Tours are $30 for the general public, and $25 for members of Indiana Landmarks. All attendees must be 21 or older. Cost includes one beverage (a pint of beer or a soft drink) and samples of five pre-selected appetizers. Tickets must be purchased at least 72 hours in advance by visiting bierbuilding2021.eventbrite.com, or by contacting Indiana Landmarks at 317-639-4534 or firstname.lastname@example.org. No walk-up tickets will be available.
