The Pineapple: A Symbol of Hospitality

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The pineapple has a long and rich history, in fact somewhere along the line it even found it’s way to becoming the unofficial symbol of hospitality. But how much do we actually know about pineapples?

Join your hosts Dean Callan and Charlotte Voisey as we dive head first into the wonderful, wild, colorful and tasty world of the not so humble Pineapple. From it’s historical rise to the top of the social food chain, to it’s cultural demise at the hands of the canned food industry, we will taste our way through some of the most broadly influential drinks ever created as well as some gems that need to be shared more often.

Whether you are a Bartender, Chef, Consumer, Blogger, Cocktalian, Chef de Bar, Brandtender, Mixologist, Drinksnobologist, beverage dispensologist or plain old boozer we guarantee you will never look at a pineapple in the same way again.
