Events &ToursCraft Alcohol

Let Us Inspire, Educate, and Entertain You With Our Virtual and In-Person Events

Join us for virtual tastings, meet the maker events, cocktail classes, and more.

Sharing our love of craft alcohol is great, but drinking alongside fellow enthusiasts while we do it is even better. Which is exactly why we have so many opportunities for Tippler Nation to drink, engage, learn, and enjoy craft drinks together, virtually and in person!

Whether you join one of our many public events or book your own private event, we can’t wait to raise a glass, celebrate craft alcohol, and build community together. All of our events are designed with you in mind…meaning we want to hear from you!

Virtual Tastings

Join us for a craft alcohol tasting at home.

Craft Wine Tastings | Craft Beer Tastings | Craft Cider Tastings | Craft Whiskey Tastings

During our virtual tastings, you’ll learn about the specific type of tipple we’re sipping on and dive deep into our recommended tasting techniques to enhance your drinking experience and expand your palate. And, of course, you’ll get a chance to ask questions, meet new friends, and support amazing small craft businesses directly.

While these virtual tasting experiences are free to attend, we always advise purchasing some of the featured craft products. We’ll share them in advance and this way you can sip along with us and support great craft makers in the process.

Meet the Maker

Join us for these exclusive events to engage and interact directly with craft distillers, cider makers, brewers, and winemakers.

Meet the incredible people behind the craft brands and products we love featuring — catch a replay of our event with Alex from One Eight Distilling. During these special events you’ll learn from the maker directly and be visually transported to where the magic happens while tasting through our featured maker’s products when you order them in advance.

These virtual tasting events give Tippler Nation special access to special people in the craft community and are all about education, entertainment and engaging directly with the makers (and us!).

Do you know a maker who we should feature or are you a maker yourself? Contact us here to let us know and get featured.

Craft Drink Classes

Craft Cocktail Classes

Make bar-worthy cocktails from the comfort of your own home

Learn how to be a home mixologist as we teach cocktail fundamentals and flair while we shake ‘n’ stir up two or three cocktails during our time together. Beyond those specific cocktails, you’ll leave these events with an understanding of how to alter ingredients and techniques to make a variety of amazing cocktails at home.

These cocktail-making classes are interactive, engaging, and memorable. We don’t teach you how to follow a recipe, we teach you how to be a mixologist!

Don’t forget to grab the ingredients (or one of our all-inclusive cocktail class boxes) we share in advance for the most immersive and enjoyable experience.

Specialty Classes

When we want to nerd out about some craft drink or topic

Sometimes we just want to hang out with Tippler Nation and share a fun craft drink idea that we think you’ll enjoy too.

Like perhaps a Chardonnay and Popcorn pairing where we teach you how to make Evan’s “best popcorn ever” and share Suzanne’s all-time favorite toppings while we sip on Chardonnay and discuss complementary styles.

Or a “Show Us Your Rosé” roundtable where we just want to have a summer kick-off party and crowd source some new favorites to get us through the heat.

If you have ideas, we’d love to hear them and are always happy to host boozy craft drinks events that Tippler Nation will enjoy.

It felt so natural and comfortable

I thought the event went off so well and the consensus on our Zoom call with everyone afterwards was that all of them had a GREAT time. I was admittedly nervous because virtual meetings can often be kind of awkward (especially while trying to manage a surprise component!) but you guys did such a great job facilitating – it felt so natural and comfortable and that was definitely thanks to how good you both are at navigating this format.

Our members loved it

What a great time! Really appreciate you two. Our members loved it and you got several new fans :). I could tell a few of our sponsors had their wheels turning wanting to potentially reach out and do something similar for their clients 🙂 Thanks again!! The feedback was wonderful and everyone had a blast.

Founder of The Crafty Cask and Craft Alcohol Marketing Bootcamp

Passionate about all things craft alcohol, I founded The Crafty Cask to celebrate and support craft alcohol makers while helping expand the enjoyment of craft alcohol enthusiasts. At my core, I’m an explorer. I live life with the sole purpose of feeding my curiosity and discovering new experiences, mostly through travel, food, and alcohol. I am obsessed with trying everything, learning, hearing stories, meeting people, and sharing what I find and enjoy with others…which we do best during our virtual and in person events.

Sommelier, Certified Cider Professional, and Bespoke Wine Tour Guide

Having spent 9 years bringing craft alcohol enthusiasts, like you, to wineries, distilleries, cider houses, and breweries I have a deep appreciation and love for craft alcohol and the people behind each sip. As a sommelier and certified cider professional, I have deep knowledge that I am passionate about sharing with others in a way that is approachable, engaging, and fun. Suzanne and I love helping people find new types of alcohol, as well as new brands of alcohol they already enjoy through our virtual and in person events.
