Tagged:

Originally, the Sazerac cocktail was made with French brandy. In 1873, the recipe for the Sazerac Cocktail was altered to replace the French brandy with American Rye whiskey. We decided to recreate the original with Hennessy Cognac – plus ginger syrup, a few dashes of barrel aged bitters, and of course, a heavy absinthe rinse.

The Great American Beer Festival consists of 3800 beers and 780 breweries, attended by 60,000 people.

We’re still dreaming of the mango IPAs, PB&J porters, and an endless amount of sours and imperial stouts. Just a few highlights includ Avery, Wicked Weed, Goose Island, Melvin Brewing, Boneyard, Odell, Fremont and Dogfish Head.
