The Masters of Social Gastronomy Present: The History of Cocktails at Industry City Distillery
Sarah Lohman is a culinary historian and the author of the bestselling and critically acclaimed book Eight Flavors: The Untold Story of American Cuisine. She focuses on the history of American food as a way to access stories of women, immigrants, and people of color, and to address issues of racism, sexism, and xenophobia. Her work has been featured inTheWall Street Journal andThe New York Times, as well as onAll Things Considered; and she has presented across the country, from the Smithsonian Museum of American History in Washington, DC to The Culinary Historians of Southern California. She is also 1/2 of the Masters of Social Gastronomy, a monthly food science and history talk at Caveat NYC, with Brainery co-founder Jonathan Soma.
Soma was born in the South, is what someone from the North would say. He co-founded the Brainery, is the sciencey half of Masters of Social Gastronomy, and plans on getting married to Waffle House. In his more droll moments he is a tragic sellout to higher ed as a professor of data journalism at Columbia University's journalism school.

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.
