Sunday, September 30, 2012!
PourTaste proudly hosts the inaugural East Nashville Cocktail Crawl! In response to Music City’s flourishing cocktail culture, PourTaste’s Jon and Lindsay Yeager created a city wide event as a platform to celebrate Nashville’s talent behind the bar, which is being recognized nationally month after month. With mixologists, brand representatives and alcohol producers all sharing the spotlight for this one night, the East Nashville Cocktail Crawl will help define what Nashville does best: present amazing culture and product, rivaling any other city, with hospitality and grace that is truly our own. With premier sponsorship from Yelp and DrinkMusicCity, the East Nashville Cocktail Crawl aims to showcase the passion and creativity of each mixologist alongside a thriving palate-driven community.
On the evening of Sunday September 30th 2012, participating venues will entertain and showcase their knowledge and love for the art of the cocktail, providing both classic and contemporary libations. Each venue will provide signature recipes using Plymouth gin and Knob Creek rye whiskey. In addition to imbibing on hand crafted cocktails, attendees will have access to the Tasting Room, which will focus on craft and boutique spirits, cordials and liquors in an educational and interactive way.
