CLASS BY ASSOCIATION offers cocktail enthusiasts an opportunity to delve deeper and refine their knowledge. Classes explore bar basics, tools and techniques as well as individual spirits, their history and use in classic and contemporary cocktails.

The Association’s head mixologist, Scott Cushman and Eliah Mountjoy, hosts the 45 minute classes EVERY SATURDAY, with each class focused on different levels of expertise and topics. The early class, our Advanced Level Class, delves deeper into topics already covered in previous classes (aka: for the true spirit nerd!); the Basic Class covers topics with a more basic approach and is recommended for first-time class attendees.

CLASS BY ASSOCIATION OFFERS TWO SEATINGS

1st Seating – 8:00pm – 8:45pm { Advanced Level Class }

2nd Seating – 9:00pm – 9:45pm { Basic Class }

CLASSES ARE $20 PER PERSON AND INCLUDE:
