What is Thirst Boston?

Thirst Boston is a weekend long cocktail festival focused on education all about cocktails and spirits. We have amazing classes during the day with everything to get you need to get started making cocktails at home, all the way up to career focused education for hospitality professionals. Our nights are full of celebration and fun, including a state fair featuring makers, distillers and brewers from all over New England, and the fourth annual Blender Bender: where some of Boston's best bartenders compete for the coveted golden blender.

Why Thirst? Because like you, we‘re inspired to drink well every day – from our morning coffee to our afternoon beers (don’t tell) to our late night cocktails. What we drink and how we drink it inspires us to seek out the very best products and people. Thirst Boston is a gathering of bartenders, industry icons and beverage connoisseurs from Boston and beyond.  Our goal is to educate attendees on the science, craft, and taste of all things related to the art of drink.
