The Masters of Social Gastronomy Present: The History of Cocktails at Industry City Distillery
Dubbed a “historic gastronomist,” Sarah Lohman recreates historic recipes as a way to make a personal connection with the past. She chronicles her explorations in culinary history on her blog, Four Pounds Flour, and her work has been featured in The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal. She appears on the Cooking Channel's Food: Fact or Fiction? and is 1/2 of the Masters of Social Gastronomy with co-founder Jonathan Soma.
Currently, she works with museums and galleries around the city to create public programs focused on food, including institutions such as The American Museum of Natural History, The Museum of Science, Boston, and The Lower East Side Tenement Museum. Her first book, Eight Flavors: The Untold Story of American Cuisine, was published with Simon & Schuster in 2016.
Soma was born in the South, is what someone from the North would say. He cooks for fun, codes for hire, and has more hobbies than can dance on the head of a pin. His work has been featured everywhere from Gawker to The New York Times.

Our Masters of Social Gastronomy lecture series takes on a curious food topic and breaks down the history, science, and stories behind it. Up this month: cocktails.
The cocktail is credited as one of America's greatest inventions. But where did it come from, and how did it evolve into the endless combinations we find today? Sarah will examine the dawn of the cocktail and trace the origins of some of our country's most beloved imbibements.
Soma will tackle our modern-day obsession with the cocktail. Rules will be broken and assumptions shattered, as we cover water vs whiskey, shaken vs stirred, and the One True Way to craft a martini.
This event takes place at Industry City Distillery, located at 33 35th Street in Sunset Park, Brooklyn. Cocktails from the Industry City Distillery tasting room bar will be available for purchase. Please note the event is mixed standing and seating. 21+ only.
