New documentary flips the shaker on the ‘craft’ cocktail movement.
In the boozy-new documentary, “Hey Bartender: The Story of the Bartender in the Era of the Craft Cocktail,” famous drinkers, from both sides of the bar, saddle up to chat about the advent and appeal of all those post-Prohibition, retro-speakeasies that have popped up in secret spots in metropolitan cities–from Chicago to San Francisco–over the past five years.
There’s some great fall-down tales as well as gee-wiz moments on how those mustachioed men and tight-vested women make those crazy concoctions. The film opens June 7th. Hide the flask in that dark theater.
