What is Thirst Boston?

Thirst is New England’s premier cocktail festival. We focus on education involving spirits, cocktails, and locally made beverages. With a weekend full of exciting classes and spirited events, Thirst helps the community bond together over a shared passion for all things cocktail. Join us at the Boston center for Adult Education for classes ranging from an introduction to rum, understanding flavor profiles, to more advanced ice carving. By night we’ll bring New England’s best offerings with events like State Lines and the Gender Bender Blender Bender.
