In a rare burst of energy, the Beachbum has hand-picked four of the world’s most entertaining rum authorities and brought them together, for the first and only time, to celebrate Tiki’s favorite spirit. The Rumposium — a part of the Hukilau four-day Tiki festival, June 9-12 — will be a rollicking ride down the rapids of a river of rum, an exhaustive and literally explosive look at rum in history, rum on the high seas, rum in Tiki drinks, how to pair rum with food, how to pair rums with each other, how to keep zombies away using rum, and how to use rum in Zombies. Don’t miss the cocktails, the tall tales, or the gunpowder test!
The Rats range from London (Ian “Rum Ambassador” Burrell, globe-trotting rum evangelist and founder of UK Rumfest) to San Francisco (Martin Cate of Smuggler’s Cove, winner of Nighclub & Bar magazine’s “Cocktail Lounge of the Year” award) to New Orleans (Atlantic magazine cocktail columnist Wayne Curtis, author of the rum bible And A Bottle Of Rum, and Stephen Remsberg, owner of the world’s largest rum collection).
This is a one-time-only event, exclusive to the Hukilau. We won’t be herding these cats again! For more info:
