It’s a Pop-Up Valentine’s Day Shopping & Pub Crawl!
Whiskey, Chocolate, Soup, Cocktails, Oh My!

A week before Valentine’s Day we are bringing it, in downtown Brattleboro. Get yourself in the spirit and check out our downtown shops for the special idea, gift or experience for the sweet ones in your life. Sip on samples of spirits, beer, cider, wine and snacks while you gain inspiration. There is an NA ticket available and every stop will have a non-alcoholic option for those who prefer it.
14 Shops + 14 Tastemakers = deliciousness galore

More information and tickets available here , tickets will be available for purchase on the night of the event at both of the starting points:

River Garden Marketplace & Latchis Hotel Lobby

We are hosting Brattleboro’s own Counter Cultures Kitchen as we celebrate the opening of our new brick+mortar shop at 128 Main Street in downtown Brattleboro! We’ll have drinking chocolate by the cup and a plethora of chocolates to purchase for general savoring and gifting, as well as Valentine’s Day including our singular Heart Bonbon Boxes.
