A modern twist is taking something great and making it even better. Mixologists are always reinventing traditional cocktails. The still popular and time-honored families of mixed drinks include Sours, Flips and Swizzles. Oxford Dictionary can date the word “flip” as far back as 1695 to describe a mixture.
In this new and delicious cocktail class, our Ninety Acres Mixologists will use farm fresh ingredients to teach you easy ways to spice up your traditional drinks.

Located in the heart of Santa Maria Valley in sunny southern California, Presqu'ile’s small-production wines are highly regarded amongst wine critics and sommeliers. Join proprietor Matt Murphy, and winemaker Dieter Cronje, as they team up with Brooke to showcase wines from their certified sustainably-farmed vineyards. At this legendary party, they just might have a few tricks and treats up their sleeves.

Known for their “off centered ales for off centered people” Dogfish Head continues to push Craft beer forward with their complex offerings and June 3rd will be no different.
