Google Places Presents: A Whiskey Rebellion at Saloon

Wednesday, February 15, 2012 from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM (ET)
Somerville, MA

FACT: The Whiskey Rebellion, or Whiskey Insurrection, was a tax protest in the United States in 1789, during the presidency of George Washington. Farmers who sold their grain in the form of whiskey had to pay a new tax which they strongly resented. The tax was a part of treasury secretary Alexander Hamilton‘s program to pay off the national debt. (thanks,Wikipedia!)

FACT: This has absolutely nothing to do with OUR Whiskey Rebellion, which will be a chance to explore everything there is to know about whiskey, shared by one of Saloon‘s resident experts. We’ll be sampling three types of that bold brown liquor as we learn about it, paired with an array of delicious bites from the kitchen.

This is an invitation-only, 25 person event, ages 21+.

    My favorite drink is a modified summer brew: one can of limeaid, two ‘cans’ of cherry flavored vodka, and four cheap beers (or until the pitcher is full). Serves aplenty!
