BOSTON COCKTAIL SUMMIT
The first-ever Boston Cocktail Summit will take place OCTOBER 4 to 6. Organized by The Greater Boston Beverage Society, it will be a three-day city-wide celebration of Greater Boston’s cocktail culture designed to highlight the city’s history of mixology, New England’s breweries, wineries, and distilleries, and raise funds to help local charities. A consumer event that is open the public, the Summit will feature such personalities as renowned mixologists Dale DeGroff and Tony Abou-Ganim; celebrated Boston chefs who will prepare cocktail dinners; and local and international spirits authorities like Steve Olsen, Doug Frost, Brother Cleve, and Dushan Zaric who will offer educational seminars. Evenings will be filled with galas, parties, cocktail contests, and more.
The Boston Cocktail Summit aims to promote and elevate the food and beverage traditions of New England, offering a cocktail festival that is at once informative, educational, fun, and quintessentially Boston. Proceeds will support the Greater Boston Beverage Society and its 2O12 beneficiaries The Lovin’ Spoonfuls, The Jimmy Fund, and Share Our Strength. Established in September, 2O11 by local mixologists Alexei Beratis and Jamie Walsh, The Greater Boston Beverage Society is a not-for-profit organization developed to preserve and promote Boston’s cocktail and hospitality culture and spirits history while supporting local and national beverage industry-related charities.
