Mezcal Mini Fest

An afternoon dedicated to mezcal and Mexican food.

Sydney has had some fun with Mexican spirits this month and the revelry is set to continue when Surry Hills' Tio's Cerveceria brings its Mezcal Mini-Fest to Melbourne for the first time. Smith Street eatery Hotel Jesus will host the festivities on Sunday, March 25. The evening will celebrate the smoky agave spirit that — despite popular assumption — is more akin to whisky than tequila.

It all kicks off from 4pm with a two-hour tasting session where you can try over 50 notable mezcals. The tasting is free so we recommend heading there early to secure a spot at the bar.

The merriment continues from 6pm when the kitchen starts doling out tacos and DJs hit the decks. And a special drinks list put together by Tio's Hotel Jesus and Mamasita will help you wash it all down.
