Meet the Makers: Beer & Whiskey

Friday, March 24 6-7:30pm in the Ithaca Beer Barrel Room

Join us as we celebrate the Spirit of the Finger Lakes with guests from Finger Lakes Distilling in a special private release tasting of Bochka, a Russian Imperial Stout aged in Finger Lakes Distilling rye barrels. 

Finger Lakes Distilling President Brian McKenzie and Distiller Jared Baker will moderate a tasting of Bochka and Finger Lakes Distilling spirits along with Ithaca Beer Head of Brewing, Andrew Hausman. And as a special treat, we will also pour samples of our rare Le Bleu from our archive.

This unique early evening gathering will also feature samples of several Ithaca library selections, Finger Lakes Distilling spirits and a light paired tasting menu of House Cured Pepperoni with Red Buddy Cheese and Root Vegetable Pastrami Canape. 

Meet. Taste. Enjoy!
