Decatur Stirs 2016: Craft Cocktail Experience

This past Saturday, I hopped on the train and headed to Decatur Square. Here, Decatur Stirs was taking place at the Courtyard Marriot in Downtown Decatur With Decatur Square being the home of where you can have some of the best culinary and cocktail experiences it was the perfect location for this event. I had the pleasure of taking a food tour around Decatur Square and was very impressed by the culinary scene. 

A great cocktail starts with a great quality product. Here at Decatur Stirs, distributors, distilaries, and spirit companies from all over came to showcase their best specialty spirits and handcrafted cocktails. With some 50 suppliers in attendance, you were sure to leave with a few favorites written done to pick up from the store in the near future. 

If by chance you left the Marriot still searching for the perfect cocktail, cocktail connoisseurs, were also given a map of Decatur Square. On this map was a list of 15 restaurants and pubs to visit and sample sips of their specialty cocktails. The cocktail descriptions were incredible! Sadly time did not allow me to take this awesome Cocktail Tour. But you know I’ll be back to Decatur with map in hand!! Stay tuned for that post!

The best part of this event was that all proceeds benefited the Decatur Arts Alliance, organizer of the Decatur Arts Festival and public arts programming for Decatur. I’ll drink to that!!
