Mike of Oakland Spirits Company

  • Local Cellar 2801 22nd Street San Francisco, CA, 94110 United States

As sommelier/owner of Maverick Restaurant and a general wine mutineer, Mike Pierce has taken a deep dive into both obscure and classic food and wine pairings. He has received public attention for his—seemingly sophomoric but secretly intellectual— unconventional food and wine pairings from the SF Chron., Food & Wine, Globe & Mail, and Huffington Post. Do you know the perfect wine to compliment Cool Ranch Doritos or the red Skittle? He does. Now he is co-founder and chief evangelist for Oakland Spirits Company. Launched six months ago, OsCo is turning the craft spirit world upside-down and around by not only distilling things most people wouldn't think to but then bottling and selling them. We make booze of our time. Come taste some of OsCo remarkable brandies and gins!

Tasting is free and available anytime from 4:00 - 6:00.  Must be at least 21 years old.
