Alcohol enthusiasts and bar folk alike are invited to a beverage frenzy over the weekend to Top Shelf Boutique Drinks Festival. This is the second year running for Top Shelf and the pedigree of exhibitors looks set to make it worthwhile popping by. With all your favourite suppliers in the mix including 60 spirits and 25 beer and cider companies represented – there will be plenty of opportunity to try some new varieties as well as a few of your old favourites.
Talks and tastings will be taking place all around the show but special note goes to Jim Meehan, renowned author, and founder of New York City’s famed speakeasy Please Don’t Tell (who is in Melbourne hosting an exclusive pop up bar of their NYC venue) along with Jeff Bell US World Class Bartender of the Year 2013.
