wWw Twin Cities J. Carver Distillery Field Trip!

  • J. Carver Distillery 1320 Mill Lane Waconia, MN, 55387 United States

Our good friends at J. Carver Distillery will be hosting a private tour for us at their cocktail lounge and tasting room in Waconia, MN. The tour will provide an overview of their grain-to-glass approach and allow us to see the stills, mash tun, fermentation tanks, barrel aging, and bottling operations in action. We'll get a unique glimpse into the inner workings of an artisan craft distillery, followed by sampling and demonstrations in the cocktail lounge.

Date: Wednesday, August 31, 2016

Time: 6 - 10 PM

Location: Mall of America bus departure // Distillery: 35 miles southwest of Minneapolis-St. Paul at 1320 Mill Lane, Waconia
