Win Tix to The Science of Distilling at 111 Minna Gallery

The Bay's best newsletter for underground events & news

This is another dope event from the folks at Inforum. Since they’ve already written all kinds of words about it, I’m just gonna copy and paste them below, so I can get back to looking at internet porn. But if you wanna win a pair of tix, email with the word “Distilling” as the subject. Winner will be randomly chosen. All entrants will be added to our email list.

The Science of Distilling

Featuring: St. George Spirits, Charbay Winery & Distillery, Anchor Distilling, 1512 Spirits, Essential Spirits and SFVodka

Sure you can tell your Johnnie Walker from your Wild Turkey, but is there an inner geek behind that whiskey-swilling, mustachioed façade? One that yearns to know how that lovely libation came to be before it graced your glass? Get your hands dirty learning the science behind the still (cocktail shaking robots, anyone?) as we dive into the chemistry behind your cocktail. The Bay Area’s master distillers will indulge your mad scientist side, as you geek out over interactive beverage creation stations, and enjoy a drink (or three). Explore how alcohol makes its way from the ground to your gullet and become a true bar star.

Tickets include: Tastings from the Bay’s best boozeries, molecular gastronomy-style cocktails, hands-on distilling demos, mini-interviews with the Master Distillers, and the chance to have a robot serve you a drink.

Location: 111 Minna Gallery, 111 Minna St., San Francisco
Time: 6:30 – 9:00pm
Cost: $40 standard, $25 members
Please note this is a 21+ event.
