After multiple stops along the West Coast from San Francisco to Vancouver, Canada, Brewing Up Cocktails is finally heading East. Ezra Johnson-Greenough and I are taking the show on the road to New Orleans for Tales of the Cocktail 2012. We’re teaming up with El Dorado Rum and Drambuie for a Spirited Dinner at Emeril’s Delmonico Steakhouse featuring four original beer cocktails. Chef Spencer Minch has put together a great menu to pair with the drinks. Here’s the official description and menu:
