BevCon Bound!


Next week at this time, I’ll be South Carolina for the inaugural BevCon Charleston, an event that promises to bring together a host of like-minded beverage and restaurant industry professionals for three days of spirited panels, tastings, talks, and excursions.  I look forward to seeing some old friends and meeting plenty of new ones. If you’re attending, please say hello–I’ll be armed with plenty of Underberg. I’m also on two panels:

Monday, August 22
11:30AM – 12:30AM
Demystifying Amaro: Exploring the World of Bittersweet, Herbal Liqueurs
This will be a talk and guided tasting through nine different amari, including some of my favorite regional, American expressions. And it will also serve as a preview to my new book, Amaro (available October 11).

Tuesday, August 23
11:45AM – 12:45AM
So You Want to Write a Book About Booze? Navigating the Publishing Process, From Concept to Publication to Beyond
I’ll be moderating this panel of authors, which includes Paul Clarke, Matt Lee and Ted Lee, Robert F. Moss, and Kathleen Purvis.

Hope to see you there!
