It's food fest weekend in Grafton and we're kicking it off in style and spirit(s)! We'll be joined by a super special guest bartender, Kate Wise of Beau, to mix up some cocktails paired with thoughtful delicious bites of food. Each cocktail will feature Vermont spirits and our cocktail spread will be filled with local cheese, meats, and homemade MKT goodness.
This is an informal, movable feast designed to encourage fun, mingling, mirth and merriment. JOIN US! And bring a friend! After all, it's no fun drinking alone! Tickers are $25 and include big bites and two of Kate's signature "petit cocktails" each made with Vermont spirits. Additional cocktails along with wine and beer will be available for purchase.
