Bloomery Plantation Distillery Tour and Open Mic

30 Aug 2014 @ 3:00 pm - 6:00 pm UTC-5

Bloomery Plantation is a 12-acre farm steeped in history–and moonshine! A former ironworks, today it is a charming mini-distillery where they make artisan cordials by hand from their farm's own lemons and raspberries. It's also one of the most lovely spots to hear live music.

What does this have to do with technical communication, you ask? Well, it turns out running a business like this requires a lot of labeling. The process of creating SweetShines, as they call their artisan cordials, is quite technical. That's our story and we're sticking to it. We will enjoy a tour of the grounds and hear about the slightly tarnished past of this neck of the woods while we strengthen our ties to one another as a network of technical communicators. Optionally, stay for the open mic, where our own Viqui Dill will perform.

Despite the focus on spirits in the Bloomery's tasting room, this is actually a great event for families, with plenty of nonalcoholic drinks and tasty food available and lots of land to explore.
