To begin, a save the date. Local cocktail writer A. J. Rathbun has a new coming book out called Ginger Bliss and the Violet Fizz: A Cocktail Lover’s Guide to Mixing Drinks Using New and Classic Liqueurs, the release date is October 4. On Saturday, October 8 from 2 to 4pm, Rob Roy will host a celebratory event featuring cocktails from the book. Rob Roy’s Andrew Bohrer will mix drinks.
On to the week at hand:
Wednesday is the Craft Beer and Wine wingding over at the Yacht Club on Fairview Avenue, but that event appears to have sold out. Instead, you could go to Full Throttle Bottles to taste Yoho Beers from Japan. Yeah, not quite the same. Sorry about that. But still, Yoho!
The Pabst Blue Ribbon Art Mobile, a promotion on wheels that aims to take advantage of the beer brand’s self-consciously lowbrow hipster customer base, rolls into town this Thursday, September 29. There’s more information on this website.
Saturday, October 1 head to Whidbey Island for Langley’s Otoberfest, featuring beer, brats, games, and pretty views of water. Oh and hey, here are some more out-of-town Oktoberfests from the Tripster blog.
