on 15/02/11 at 12:34 pmEVENTS
Considering what’s going on at the state Capitol, it’s a good thing that there’s a plentitude of drinks this week. Distill America: A Celebration of American Distilling” is a super-duper tasting event featuring more than three dozen craft and “legendary” distilleries. Wisconsin craft distillers will showcase their products — Death’s Door, Yahara Bay, Great Lakes, Old Sugar Factory, Aeppeltreow, and 45th Parallel will all be there. Hors’ d’oeuvres will be available for leavening the effect of all that sampling. Organized by the Madison Malt Society, this third annual event benefits WORT 89.9 FM community radio. “Like a beer tasting, which admittedly I’m more familiar with, this event provided visitors with a small glass that allows about a one-ounce sample,” noted Robin Shepard in his report about last year’s tasting. “With 30-some exhibitors and well over a hundred different products, keeping the sample small was an important consideration.” Edgewater Hotel, 666 Wisconsin Ave., 7-10 p.m., $55 or $65 with VIP tasting at 6:15 p.m. Call 255-8041 for more info.
