Drinking In Culture

Spirits and fermented beverages are deeply rooted traditions across the world, from the production process to the ways in which these beverages are served. Drink in culture, literally, by gaining an insider’s understanding of how alcohol is tied into customs. Local minority business owners give you an inside scoop with a short talk followed by a guided alcohol tasting session. Step into the Museum collection for a 15-minute chat about a relevant object, explore the galleries, and enjoy additional themed drinks and snacks at a cash bar.
