Engaging the public to participate in this rare gathering of spirits, the Cocktail Melee will be the easiest opportunity to connect with brands and truly learn about your personal palate and preferred flavor profiles. The event will feature a collection of various spirits from the likes of St. George Spirits, Hangar One Vodka, House Spirits, Craft Distillers and Oxley Gin to name a few. A handful of educational spirit and cocktail classes will be given throughout the event, including Marko Karakasevic of Charbay Distillery speaking to folks about the new (and very hot) R5 Aged Whiskey made from Bear Republic's Racer 5 IPA. From dedicated spirit tastings and perfectly-balanced cocktails to classes and distilling rockstars, the Melee will keep guests intrigued and learning about the spirit-world from start to finish.
