Arlington Heights Historical Museum presents: Pour and Pair at Pops on March 3

Pour & Pair at Pop's

What do Groucho Marx and Tom Selleck have in common with Frederick William Müller, who with his half-brother Louis Sass, formed the company Sass and Brother, manufacturers of what became the beloved Arlington Club Beverages, in 1872?

If you answered that each sported a larger than life mustache, you would be correct!  Frederick, known as "Pop" Müller, retired from the family business in 1923. His two sons took over the business renaming it Arlington Club Carbonated Beverages. And although F.W. died in 1925, the “Pop Shop at the Museum” carries on the long tradition of Arlington Club Beverages, and remains a favorite destination for visitors and residents, young and young at heart alike.

The Arlington Heights Historical Museum is now giving us the chance to step back in time where “Pop” Muller, originated his soda brand. A new event, Pour & Pair at Pop’s is being held on Saturday, March 3, 7 – 9pm, at the Historical Museum, and offers a unique opportunity for guests to sample locally produced cheeses, meats, and more amongst the Museum’s collection.  The event promises to give guests exclusive access to the museum, while mixing and mingling with local artisans and other history buffs to learn what goes into making hand-crafted delicacies and drinks.

The name of this event draws attention to the event’s focus on showcasing unique craft drinks and savory foods.   Guests must be 21 years of age and all proceeds benefit the Arlington Heights Historical Museum located at 110 W. Fremont St. in Arlington Heights.

In addition to the variety of premium craft beer, spirits, and wine, the evening will also include delicious bites from food vendors including:
