Seir Hill recently attended the Mindful Drinking Festival in Washington, DC. The event took place on January 21 and featured dozens of adult non-alcoholic beverage brands. Over 360 attendees flooded the Selina Hotel lobby eager to try the variety of beverages available.
In addition to the mocktail enthusiasts, dozens of influential writers, photographers, bartenders, chefs, and social media influencers attend and visit the hospitality suite including Fritz Hahn from the Washington Post, Bill Chappel from NPR, Bernd Debusmann, Jr. of BBC, Rosalina Africano of Perfect Cocktail Pursuits, Erin Petrey of Bourbon Banter, Panos Kakaviatos of Decanter magazine, Chef Ashish Alfred of the Alfred Restaurant Group, Morgan Fykes of AsItHappens.com, Ben Eisendrath of Insomnigraphic, and Val Restificar, president of the DC Craft Bartender's Guild.
Below are just some of the media hits, and we still expect articles from the BBC, Mid-Atlantic Brewing News, and Decanter magazine.
