The Tipsy Tour: Dram Shops and Drunken Sailors

Booze. Hooch. Liquor. Kill Devil. Grog. Applejack. It’s all covered on the Tipsy Tour: Dram Shops & Drunken Sailors!

This tour is not a pub crawl - it's an exploration of Boston's boozy past! You’ll hear stories from the very beginnings of Boston’s history through Prohibition and meet some interesting characters along the way – like the Ice King, King Solomon and Admiral Edward Vernon – who had their lives stirred and shaken by booze. Even John Hancock got into trouble because of Madeira, but not how you might think.

We’ve brewed a batch of tales that covers pub life through the ages, Boston's role in the creation of early cocktails, the rise of the mob, and a duel.

    Sorry but with all the soaking rain and continued forecast of 100% chance of rain we will forego. Was really looking forward to it too.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
