About James Beard Inspired Cocktail Party

James Beard Inspired Cocktail Party

Join us for a cocktail party inspired by titan of Pacific Northwest cuisine and frequent Gearhart visitor, James Beard. Enjoy an evening dedicated to all things delicious, with elegant appetizers and an array of sample-sized cocktails mixed with our own handcrafted spirits. Sample a variety of delicious cocktails and appetizers while lounging on the Gearhart lawn, and get the opportunity to chat with members of our beverage department about our spirits. Join us and raise a glass to a true original, because, as Julia Child put it, "In the beginning, there was Beard."
