If you’d like to spend the Capitol Hill Block Party weekend learning the fine art of crafting your own spirits, then you need to get to Snohomish and brush up on your distillery craft. Skip Rock Distillers, who makes one of our favorite local vodkas, and the Northwest Agriculture Business Center are hosting an intensive Craft Distilling workshop on July 26th and 27th, with one epic no-host Craft Cocktail walking tour taking you through the local bar scene after classes end.
This is one of the most comprehensive series we’ve ever seen offered locally, covering the whole range with classes from Federal and State Liquor Regulations, to building a brand, to hands on mashing sessions and even distilling, gauging, and filtration. If you’ve been confused reading texts, don’t know where to even begin on spirits, or want to start your own distillery, this is the class for you. And if Ryan and Julie of Skip Rock are leading the classes, it’s going to be as fun as it is educational.
The two day workshop is $395, or you can attend a single day for $225 for Friday or $300 for Saturday. For registration and more details, including the full course list, check out the Northwest Agriculture Business Center class website.
