Join The New York Times and Spirits Experts for a Whiskey History and Tasting!

Alcohol — perhaps more than any product — has been a perennial target of regulation and a source of pubic revenue since the founding of our nation. It has inspired our government’s first tax, subsequent rebellion, consumer product regulations, and unrestrained effort at eradicating an industry. Meet us at Threadbare Cider/Wigle Whiskey, Pittsburgh's first distillery since Prohibition, to learn some of the historical highlights of the wild historical booze ride in America and examine what the future holds for drinking in Pennsylvania and across the country. Whiskey tasting inclusive!

Clay Risen, the deputy op-ed editor at The New York Times and spirits expert, will moderate the discussion with ​Meredith Meyer Grelli, a Co-Founder of Wigle Whiskey and Threadbare Cider & Mead; Leslie A. Przybylek, the senior curator at the Senator John Heinz History Center in Pittsburgh and State Representative Paul Costa, the Democratic chairman of the House Liquor Control Committee.

Purchase tickets now to hear about whiskey's complicated history and then sample some of today's most innovative takes on the spirit.
