A special thanks to our reception sponsors St. George Spirits, Big Dog Vineyards, Hermitage Brewing Company and Red Branch Cider Company.

In a spirited tour across continents and cultures, Rogers puts our alcoholic history under the microscope.

From our ancestors’ accidental discovery of fermented drinks to the cutting-edge laboratory research, Rogers offers a unique glimpse inside the barrels, stills, tanks and casks that produce some of our most iconic beverages. He uncovers alcohol’s deepest mysteries and the subtle mixture of psychology and neurobiology that fuels our taste for such drinks.

If you’ve ever wondered how your drink of choice arrived in your glass, or exactly what happens once you empty it, Rogers reveals the answers.
