Handcrafted small-batch whiskeys paired with yummy bites prepared by local chefs await guests as they stroll through Alameda’s historic district at the 3rd Annual Downtown Alameda Whiskey Stroll on Friday evening, March 6 from 6:00pm to 9:00pm.
Ticket holders will have the opportunity to visit unique downtown shops and spaces while tasting more than ten different premium whiskeys from around the Bay Area and learning about the creative process behind each handcrafted flavor. Price of admission includes collectible tasting glass, whiskey tastings at more than ten unique downtown businesses, a delicious bite at each location prepared by downtown eateries, a commemorative guide, as well as exclusive offers from downtown businesses.
“Our events help people discover that Alameda is a fantastic destination to shop, eat, and play. The Whiskey Stroll is a unique opportunity to attract downtown visitors who may not already be familiar with our diverse range of local businesses,” states Aviva Kellman, Membership & Events Coordinator of the Downtown Alameda Business Association. “Talking to people at the event is always interesting. Guests enjoy coming to the Whiskey Stroll because it makes them feel like part of a community that is vibrant and active.”
