"Well Locals, it's finally time to break out the shakers and get down to our first craft cocktail dinner! For years you've come to enjoy our collabs on a series of monthly beer dinners featuring NC & East Coast brewers and now it's time to shine the light on some of our favorite North Carolina distilleries. That's right, on Tuesday, March 19th we'll be partnering up with Durham Distillery, Outer Banks Distilling, Graybeard Distillery, and Great Wagon Road Distilling Co. to bring you a craft cocktail showdown like no other.
This 5-course feast will be a celebration of Spring Southern flavors and NC spirits and will feature a taste of each of our star stills alongside a cocktail pairing and Local 22 dish! Our star studded cast includes:
• Conniption Gin of Durham Distillery, voted #1 Gin Distiller of 2018 by USA Today
