Local Events: Vermouth & Ginger Beer Tastings

The Boston Shaker is hosting 2 exciting tasting events in the coming weeks.  The first, is a (free) tasting of Barritt's Bermuda Stone Ginger Beer to be held at the store from 5-7pm on October 22nd.  Barritt's is a sugar cane based ginger beer that promotes itself as "a zesty ginger soft drink, that has been bottled continuously since 1874."  The Boston Shaker crew will be offering up Dark and Stormy's using the brew, as well as a mystery cocktail!

Next week, on Friday October 29th, the Boston Shaker will then host an amazing sounding vermouth tasting with Carl Sutton of Sutton Cellars, an artisnal .winery in San Franciso.  Several different vermouths will be sampled, and in addition, there will be a "deconstructed tasting" of Sutton Cellars Brown Label vermouth.  The event, which will run from 8pm-9:30, costs $45 and has limited seating.
