Masters of Social Gastronomy Jan 29: Dry January: Alcohol-Free Drinks and the Temperance Movement

Jan 29, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

$12 – $15

WED // JAN 29
To celebrate the end of Dry January, MSG is covering the dream of an alcohol-free world!
If a month without alcohol is hard, try 13 years! Sarah will delve into the history of the Temperance Movement, and its culmination in Prohibition. The butt of many a joke, was the Temperance Movement deserving of ridicule? Did Prohibition actually work? You’ll find out when Sarah tells all!
Soma will explore the constantly-expanding world of 0% beers and alcohol-free wines and spirits. How do you craft a liquor without the kick, or a beer without the booze? He’ll cover the science that makes them flourish (or fail!), and provide the taste test tips to make sure you’re picking the best of the bunch.
Culinary historian Sarah Lohman and resident food scientist Jonathan Soma are the Masters of Social Gastronomy. Each month, they fearlessly take on a curious food topic, breaking down the history and science behind what we eat.
Doors 6:30 PM, show 7:00 PM.
Tickets $12 in advance, $15 at the door.
