We all love a good cocktail, but how often do you get the chance to really explore the wide world of spirits? To learn about the making of the latest hand crafted whiskeys, to taste locally distilled spirits, or to learn how to throw a killer cocktail party at home? We’re here to help with Cocktail Camp PDX.
Cocktail Camp is a day long event that’s part social gathering and part learning experience. You can listen to talks and panel discussions from experts on distilling and mixology, all while enjoying some fine drinks and chatting with other cocktail enthusiasts. We endeavor to bring you a laid-back, fun approach to the craft of making cocktails while our bartenders serve you cocktails and punches.
Tickets include four drink tickets good for cocktails served at social hours throughout the day. Enjoy a drink with us and explore the world of cocktails!
Here’s a little more about what you can expect from your day:
