2nd Annual DC Rum Day Kicks Off In a Yummy Way

It was a rummy yummy night Monday at Beuchert’s Saloon as DC Rum Day kicked-off with an industry VIP pairing dinner featuring a variety of rums accompanying Chef Andrew Markert‘s farm-to-table menu.  Beuchert’s ownership team and rum industry representatives (some pictured above) were on hand to educate and celebrate the sugar cane based spirit
