I know where I’m spending my Sunday afternoon. I’ll be sipping spirits, tasting mini-cocktails, and eating yummy nibbles at St. George Spirits in Alameda. Well, actually that’s not entirely true. That is what YOU get to do if you attend St. George’s annual Holiday Open House. I’ll be the one behind the bar, pouring those spirit tastings and mini-cocktails.

That’s right, the good ‘ol hangar, located on the old Alameda Navel Base, is hosting a shin-dig. With one of the best views in the bay area, and certainly, in my very humble opinion, some of the finest locally made artisan spirits (including citrus-infused vodkas, single malt whiskey, and heavenly pear and raspberry liqueurs), this is an event not to be missed.

For more details and to find the hangar, visit the Hangar One or St. George Spirits website.

St. George Spirits Distillery
$25/person paid at the door.
This is a 21 and over event.
