"For the Love of Agave is our annual signature event that lets us celebrate what we are most passionate about with our community," said Añejo General Manager Jessica Simms. "The tasting celebration is a fun opportunity to celebrate and sample an array of agave spirits and bring together our local community with something for novices and newbies to experts and aficionados. After selling out the winter event earlier this year in record time, we decided to expand and add a fall event with even more producers and expressions to try. We are excited to see this signature event grow - and to offer one of the most in-depth tequila and mezcal events in the region."

She added, "Whether you are a seasoned pro looking for that new favorite agave spirit to sip on, or a newbie trying to get back into the agave spirit world since that last bad hangover from college, we got you covered. Each time we do this we get larger and larger, and it is so much fun seeing regulars come back along with newbies. It's one of my personal favorite nights of the year."
