What if we took the craft cocktail experience out of a bar—and dropped it into something closer to a concert? Drinks as one part of a stage show, traveling between cities? That's what Aaron Polsky (Amor y Amargo, Neta, Manon) and Damon Boelte (Prime Meats) are going for. We chatted with Polsky about his plans for Cripple Creek, the talent involved, and what exactly a "live multi-sensory cocktail experience" means.
The rise in cider festivals this fall is a clear sign that America's "cider revolution" is in full swing. From inaugural events in Vermont and the Finger Lakes, to tried and true celebrations in Michigan and Massachusetts, here are a few events across the country serving up a crash course in our favorite apple tipple.
There are few relationships more symbiotic than coffee and alcohol. As does the sun come up each morning, so must it go down each night. Thus, the second-annual Coffee Cocktail Mash-Up bellies up to the bar this Sunday, June 24, in NYC. The event is a rare opportunity to celebrate the marriage of coffee and booze, and in this case, coffee's meant to be the couple's better half.
Even though many bartenders are storytellers, writers, poets, and playwrights on the side, it's rare for a group of them to get together and build cocktails inspired by bits of verse. At the National Poetry Month Cocktail Celebration this weekend at Back Forty in New York, they did just that, offering a group of drinks each inspired by a poem.
The folks behind Get Real NY are quickly making a name for themselves as hosts of some of the best craft-beer focused events in New York City. By bringing together world renowned beers from the likes of Founders, Anchorage, Nogne O, and more with food from some of the city's top chefs, these events walk the line between gourmet feast and block party buffet. Their latest event, Aporkalypse Now, took place on February 25, and was no exception.
From super local brews to rare releases from up the coast, L.A. Beer Week has thus far offered a range of stellar sips. Take a look at some of our favorites in the slideshow, and if you're in town, there's still plenty of Beer Week to be enjoyed—now through October 23.
Portland Cocktail week is rapidly approaching. If you've glanced at the schedule on the PDXCW homepage you know just how many great looking tours, seminars, and parties are taking place. As much as I would l love to go to every event, I must be realistic, I still have my job—as well as my liver—to worry about. So where will I be sipping? Here's the game plan.
NYC Brewer's Choice at City Winery offered beer lovers a rare opportunity to try a number of limited, unique, and aged beers while talking to the brewers who crafted them. We ate and drank our way through the crowd in search of the night's standouts.
Just about no one in the cocktail world is as revered as cocktail expert and historian David Wondrich, and he'll be appearing at New York's Astor Center tomorrow night.
Last week the organizers and sponsors of Tales of the Cocktail brought this signature New Orleans event to Vancouver, B.C. How did the event function in another, less notoriously party-hearty city? Did it translate into Canadian? After spending several days in Vancouver for before-and-after celebrations, as well as for the main event on Monday, I can say with a little surprise that the answer is "mostly yes."
While whiskey buyers have historically been overwhelmingly male, women are a fast-growing segment of the whiskey world.
