Here’s a tasty way to get in the spirit of spooky szn: Hit the street on October 8 for the Apple Booze Bash at Short Path Distillery. The fourth annual festival celebrates all things appley, from apple cider flights spiked with housemade Apple Brandy to apple cider doughnuts. 

The all-day party takes over the Everett tasting room, patio, and the street outside with two outdoor bars in addition to the inside option. Short Path will have just released two annual fall spirits, each made with local apples: Apple Brandy, distilled from local apples and aged in oak barrels; and Pommeau, a barrel-aged apple cordial derived from locally grown and pressed apple cider. Experience each liqueur in a spiked cider flight, or as essential elements of special cocktails. Short Path is also conjuring up a limited-edition surprise release, which will only be available for purchase during the Apple Booze Bash.


Boston-area food vendors are joining the fall fun with food trucks rolling in throughout the event, including The Nada Cart, Bonetown Burgers, and Lala’s Neapolitan-ish Pizza. Tubb’s Doughnuts, new to the pop-up scene from Watertown, is frying up apple cider doughnuts for the occasion. Stay tuned for the full food vendor schedule as Apple Booze Bash approaches. 

Admission is free, but RSVPs are encouraged. Look for an event page on or after Friday, Sept. 9.
