Ladies Behind Bars: A History of Women in the Spirits Industry

Tuesday March 3, 2015
6:30 PM until 8:15 PM

From mold-breaking saloon owners to current day cocktail mavens women have had a vital, though often overlooked, impact on the evolution of bars and cocktails. Boston and New York members of LUPEC (Ladies United for the Preservation of Endangered Cocktails) will present an inspiring history of ladies like Ada Coleman, former Head Bartender of the Savoy Hotel and Helen David, who opened the Brass Rail Bar in the midst of the Great Depression.

The alcohol-influenced social changes that took place during Prohibition and WWII will be addressed, as well as modern-day first ladies of bartending who are innovating behind the stick today. With the spirit and wit specific to lady barkeeps, we will celebrate the women that have influenced cocktail history.

Join us for the “After-Party” at the Pasta Loft in Milford where specialty cocktails will be sold to benefit the Library Building Fund.
