We LUPEC gals are some bitter broads…when it comes to cocktails, anyway. We’ve been fans of The Bitter Truth products since we got our hot little hands on test samples a while back, and eagerly awaited the Boston launch of this brand for years. The Bitter Truth bitters became available in the Bean a few months back and we’re now thrilled to announce that The Bitter Truth founders, Stephan Berg and Alexander Hauck, are coming to Boston, too.
The exciting roster of consumer events lined up include a fabulous Meet & Greet/Tasting at The Boston Shaker from 6-7 p.m. tomorrow followed by a seminar at DownTown Wine & Spirits from 8-9:30. There are still a few spots left for this, so make sure to reserve your spot today!
If you can’t make it to either event tomorrow, Stephan and Alexander will be guest bartending at Eastern Standard on Thursday from 4 – 7 p.m. Come by for a drink and to chat about their famous brand of artisanal bitters.
