Argos Presents: Booze School

Have you heard of port, but never been sure where it comes from, how it’s made, or when people drink it?

The agave plant can take a decade to mature – are you a mezcal enthusiast who wants to learn more about keeping that industry sustainable?

Do you walk into a cocktail bar and not recognize most things in the ingredient list, or have any idea how to order a drink you’ll like?

Cocktails were all the rage before Prohibition – they look quite different now, are you curious how “The Noble Experiment” changed them?

*If any of those questions describe you, you’ll fit right in.*

Join us for one or any of 15 weekly interactive tasting events! Come with a date, friends, or solo and meet new people, try different spirits, and learn some booze trivia! Each week we taste 4 spirits and give an overview of their history and production, with plenty of time for you to chat with your table and ask us questions in between.

Hosted at the Argos Warehouse, these casual, open-discussion based evenings cover a myriad of topics including distillation processes, history, and ancient and modern cultural impacts. Light snacks will be provided.

Tastings for each event will be available for purchase at the bar during the week if you are unable to attend the Tuesday session.
