Presented by Renée Cebula, cocktail historian
American drinking traditions expanded west with the nation and
changed along the way. The barkeep deserves a place alongside explorers and
farmers in our western pantheon. Hear the stories about how what people drank
and who served them changed as America expanded west.
This wide-ranging presentation will cover the rise of American
whiskey and westward expansion, early drinking and distilling traditions in the
Pacific Northwest, and the first “golden age” of American cocktails. Learn
about how the golden age of cocktail culture intersected with the rise of
western cities like Seattle, Spokane, and Tacoma. We’ll also talk about the
many functions of the 19th-century saloon, from workers’ ethnic enclaves to
gentlemen’s retreats, and the controversies that arose around saloon culture.

Oregon and Pacific Northwest history. Co-sponsored by like-minded historical
and civic organizations, we bring you experts, scholars, first-person
experiencers and historians who expound on topics from Lewis and Clark to
shipwrecks, hop growing to women pioneers and far, far beyond. It's like being
back in the classroom - except this time you get to settle into comfortable
seats and enjoy a drink or two with dinner while you listen and learn.
