Friday Night Rye: Grand Tasting Reception

Friday, November 10, 4:30-7:30pm

Hotel Revival Baltimore, 101 West Monument Street 21202

Indulge in the grand tasting, a celebration of locally crafted rye whiskeys that pay homage to our rich history.

This event will happen immediately following the Rye Revival Symposium, which is happening 2 blocks away at the Maryland Center for History and Culture, from 9-4pm. Attendees will leave the symposium and head to Topside at Hotel Revival - a bar we have rented out, overlooking historic Mount Vernon.

We invite MD Rye producers to join us, and pour 1-2 of their Maryland Rye Whiskies. Due to space constraints, only one distillery rep may pour. Please note that Governor Moore has been invited to serve as the host for this event.
