Join the Regal Beagle, Union Park Press, Brookline Booksmith, and Bully Boy Distilleries on January 20th to pay tribute to this unique time period in Boston’s past. Stephanie Schorow, author of Drinking Boston: A History of the City and Its Spirits, will share what she’s learned about the history of drinking in Boston, from the colonial-era taverns to today’s cocktail bars, giving special attention to the notorious Prohibition period. A complimentary copy of Drinking Boston is included with your ticket. A selection of Prohibition-themed cocktails featuring Bully Boy’s small batch craft rum, whiskey and vodka and tasty passed hors d’oeuvres will provide a delicious backdrop to the evening.
