SECOND ANNUAL MILWAUKEE COCKTAIL WEEK
Milwaukee, WI - Brace yourself for Milwaukee Cocktail Week, a weeklong celebration of the Cream City’s burgeoning cocktail culture. This year’s festival, which will will take place September 21-27, 2014, brings together bartenders, cocktail luminaries and industry enthusiasts for a series of experiential events that will highlight the talent and potential of our great city.
During cocktail week, Milwaukeeans will have the chance to experience, imbibe, enjoy and educate themselves on all things cocktail-related. Some of the city’s best-loved experts will host pre-dinner, dinner, and post-dinner cocktail events in just about every neighborhood in Milwaukee.
“After a successful first year, we are excited to host another great series of Cocktail Week events,” remarks Ira Koplowitz of Bittercube. “Milwaukee is home to some of the most up-and-coming bartenders in the country. And we look forward to sharing the best our city has to offer during this amazing, weeklong soirée.”
