Minnesota Monthly’s 10th annual Fine Spirits Classic was a one-night celebration of spirits, cocktails, local crafters, savory food, and so much more. Hosted on June 16th, at the stunning Machine Shop in Northeast Minneapolis, guests spent an evening sampling creative new flavors and revisiting classic favorites. Guests were given the chance to interact with over 60 local and national distillers, breweries, and artisans in a lively, yet intimate setting. DJ Lief set the vibe for evening with fresh music as guests explored the historical two-story venue while trying handmade cocktails from the mixology professionals with Steady Pour, and high-end spirits.
This exclusive tasting event will return in 2023.
