You could drink beer, or you could drink liquor… OR you could double your pleasure and drink both at the same time. That’s right, this one’s all about beer cocktails. At Meredith Rebar’s last beer tasting at COOK, her friend and colleague Jackie Cusack assisted and commented on several beers, saying, “this would make a great cocktail!” So we jumped on the opportunity to invite both of them back for a happy hour of beer-based libations: Apply Ever After (Eight Oaks Applejack, Kurant Spice Cider, homemade clove syrup); Missing Those Summer Niiiiiiiiiiiggghttts (Evil Genius Stacy’s Mom with WP Palmer Liberty Gin, fresh pineapple, thyme simple syrup); Hot Scotty (wort from Home Brewed Events and Brothership Irish Whiskey Millstone); and Chocolate Covered Raspberry (Yards Love Stout, homemade raspberry liqueur and Stateside vodka). Meredith of Home Brewed Events is our go-to beer expert and will cover the brewsky side of things, offering samples and tasting notes of the beers used in the cocktails. From there, Jacki Cusack of Alchemist Society will shake things up, literally, using Meredith’s beer selections to prepare balanced, inventive cocktails. The Alchemist Society is an industrial workspace in Northern Liberties where guests can get schooled on everything from beer brewing to gin botanicals. Plus, the Society provides an environment where small business owners in booze biz can collaborate on special projects and events. So, join us – double your pleasure, double your fun! Please note that a full dinner will not be served, but there will be light bites.
