The tavern’s cage bar will serve ticket holders craft beer, wine, and spirits, including Staley rye whiskey, made using a family recipe that dates to the early 1820s, when the Overfield Tavern was still operating as a tavern.

Each seating will feature live music, servers in outfits reflective of the early 19th century, and the hospitality of Mr. and Mrs. Benjamin Overfield, as portrayed by Troy residents Terry and Karen Purke.
