Buy Tickets! (Eventbrite)


Whether you are a connoisseur of fine wine or a barfly who would stake their life on a favorite local brew, we’ve all heard the old wives’ tales, myths, and questions that circulate among bustling bars, hustling wineries and distilleries, and lush dinner parties. Beer before liquor, never been sicker? Will bathtub gin really make you go blind?

Cocktail historian and instructor, Brian D. Hoefling unweaves the mystery and half- truths surrounding the most ancient of human pastimes through a conversational and comical text. From the ins and outs of fermentation, distillation, aging, and mixing to the science behind intoxication and hangovers.

Brian will also be signing copies of his newest book “Distilled Knowledge: The Science Behind Drinking’s Greatest Myths, Legends, and Unanswered Questions.”

Tickets include one cocktail and there will be free pizza while it lasts.
