Drinking Boston: A History of the City and Its Spirits by Stephanie Schorow, is getting a great deal of attention from the press, and we have a lot of exciting coverage to tell you about over the next few weeks.
But first up, an interview with Stephanie Schorow will appear on Radio Boston on the afternoon of Thanksgiving! WBUR’S Anthony Brooks recently interviewed Schorow for an entertaining segment where the two discussed Boston’s colonial-era taverns, Prohibition, Kennedy family bootleggers, and this city’s famed neighborhood barrooms. [UPDATE: Listen to the interview here!]
Drinking Boston introduces readers to the cast of characters who championed or vilified drinking and the places where they imbibed—legally and otherwise. Bringing us to present day, this literary pub crawl visits some of Boston’s most beloved and enduring watering holes, ending with an examination of Boston’s very own recipe for the current cocktail renaissance sweeping the nation—the innovators, the hotspots, and the uncompromising dedication to craft.
