Bitters Boot Camp

Wisconsin is arguably the world headquarter of both the Old Fashioned cocktail and the Supper Club. At Bitters Boot Camp we’ll train you on the ins-and-outs of this classic drink while treating you to the history and traditions of the iconic “up north” dining experience. Enjoy cocktails, supper club fare, hands-on lessons on bitters and how to make your own.
