Hey All! I am proud and excited to announce that I have been chosen as the new president of the Raising Spirits Society – the charitable beneficiary and organizer of the New Orleans Bourbon Festival! Raising Spirits Society (RSS) is our new name with a new mission – providing resources, experiences, and opportunities in support of young adults in the hospitality industry.⁠

Initially, our primary focus will be around the Greater New Orleans area with the hopes of growing from there. Additionally, we will seek to expand our partnerships and opportunities with brands, hospitality venues, and other non-profit organizations with a similar mission (I’ve already been hitting some of you up on that front!) Another important goal is to broaden and diversify our board and committees. Lastly (for now), we will be looking to increase our presence with year-round activities and programming while all still culminating, of course, with the festival during the third week of March.⁠

I am honored to be entrusted with this role and look forward to building on the New Orleans Bourbon Festival, already one of the premier whiskey festivals on the planet, to push things even further with the Raising Spirits Society and our terrific partners present and future. Please feel free to hit me up to talk shop and stay tuned for more from the fest and RSS!⁠

Alright, everybody! Our first significant hospo stop after we arrived in Madrid at the beginning of our trip was 1862 Dry Bar (taking its name, in part, from the year that famed bartender and cocktail author, Jerry Thomas published his touchstone Bar-Tender’s Guide). And, what a great first visit it was! Owner Alberto Martínez, seasoned bartender Angel, and the rest of the team were amazing! It’s a great bar and a must-stop if you happen to find yourself in Madrid. ⁠

They run the gamut featuring great executions of classic cocktails as well as some terrific house specialties! The upstairs, where the main bar lives, is classic and comfortable. But, also, the downstairs basement is super-cool – modern, old-school, and cozy all at the same time (be sure to check out the spirits collection!) Of course, we felt right at home when Alberto busted out some Chartreuse expressions (pictured here) and we talked drinks, the bar scenes in NOLA and Madrid, and about mutual friends! Thanks to @1862drybar for a great time – can’t wait to go back and see our new friends again!⁠

Oh yeah, and they are no.49 on the list of the world’s @top500bars! Shout-out to @pastis-swayze and @geegedeegan for the great rec! More soon…✌️❤️🍸️🇪🇸

Hey, All! I hope everyone is doing great! Back from our wonderful trip to Spain and Italy… Yes, I know I said I would post some of our visits along the way. But there were just too many great spots, good drinks, delicious food, and some pretty solid sightseeing to take time away for social 😅 (priorities, friends)! But we’ll roll-out some things in the coming days – had the chance to visit some tremendous spots where the hospitality was off-the-charts! We’ll also be getting back to bringing you new shows, too. Stay tuned!⁠

Pictured here – enjoying some fine vino rosso in Venice, Italy – Ciao!⁠

If you’re looking to help some great New Orleans non-profit organizations that are doing important work here on Give NOLA Day, visit GiveNOLA.org. Here are a couple of suggestions near-and-dear to my heart:⁠

Turning Tables NOLA - @turningtablesnola⁠
The Southern Food & Beverage Museum - @eatdrinksofab⁠

Of course, there are many other very worthy groups out there. You can also donate to the “Lagniappe Fund,” which shares the money with all participating organizations. Your donations go further today with matching. So, if you can, please help out!⁠

Cheers and Be Well, You All!⁠

Hey, All! Long time, no see/hear! I hope everyone is doing great! In case you missed our latest episode from the end of last year or hadn’t heard it from me elsewhere, we’ve been taking a bit of a break from doing The NOLADrinks Show. And, we’re making some changes, to boot! I went into this in greater detail during the last show. But long story short, we have made the move to being a podcast-only program! I decided to pull the radio version of the show from the station, as, among other things, its values and presentation were not in-line with mine. This was a long time coming!

But it’s all good! We’re now focusing our efforts on the Nitty Grits Podcast Network – the podcast network of the Southern Food and Beverage Museum, of which, yours truly, is an executive producer. It’s a growing collection of great, like-minded shows centered broadly around food, drink, and culture. If you haven’t already, please check it out – visit SouthernFood.org for more! Of course, you can always get all our past shows at NOLADrinks.com (link in bio) or on your favorite podcast network!

We will be back in action soon on the show. In fact, we’ve got a couple of great shows that were taped earlier this year and will be out soon. This includes our annual Turning Tables show as well as great conversations with cocktail luminaries, Dale DeGroff, Philip Greene, Chris Hannah, and Abigail Gullo. So, be on the lookout for that! After doing a regular, weekly radio show and podcast for several years with only a few breaks here and there, I decided to take some time to chill out, retool some things with the show, and work on the Nitty Grits project. As a last hurrah before getting back to it, I am hitting the road for a couple weeks to visit Spain and Italy (I am sure we’ll share some stuff from the trip…) After that, we will be bringing you more episodes in short order.

Thanks to you all for the ongoing support, listenership, and friendship! It is greatly appreciated, and I look forward to bringing you interesting, important, and fun conversations with great guests that “explore the world of drink, food, and culture in New Orleans and beyond!”

Cheers and Be Well, You All!

On this week’s The NOLADrinks Show with Bryan Dias, we’re back after a bit of a break! We are over at Ecology Beer Creative, a new brewery opening in the Central City neighborhood of New Orleans in spring 2023. We’re joined by our good friend (and one half of our “Unpaid Beer Correspondent” duo), Matt Horney. He’s been a regular guest talking brews on the show for years and, if you’re a regular listener, you know he’s an exceptionally talented beermaker. Well, this new brewery is his baby and we hear all about Matt’s new spot and get a taste of what he’ll be up to. Of course, we talk beer and sip on some “archetype” examples of various styles discussing what they are, how he approaches making these types of beers, and much more!⁠
