I just found out about this now, but it looks like an awesome opportunity for those of you who want to try a TON of hard to find Bourbon and single malt.....AND meet the people behind them. I would totally be going if I had known about this earlier. Maybe some of you can go enjoy yourselves in my place.
My friend Jennifer Seidman is throwing this little shindig at her Acme Bar in Berkeley tomorrow evening.
Come and enjoy some of the most rare, expensive, and exclusive whiskey in existence. Tickets are $150 per person, but look at what you're getting!!
Meet the distillers at a relaxed intimate event. This is a select, casual event where you will be able to talk to the creators and distributors of these amazing products.
All whiskies will be paired with New Belgium's beers including their barrel aged Sour ales, La Folie and Chocolate Stout.
Hors d'oeuvres served.
Tickets available for purchase at Acme Bar or http://meetanddrink.eventbrite.com/#
