Agave: Spirit of a Nation

Scottish Rite – Outdoor Screen
Mexico is home to the highest biodiversity of agave varietals in the world. Tequila and Mezcal spirits derived from the heart of the agave are the fastest trending spirits in the marketplace. This expressive documentary takes viewers beyond the spirit to discover how one plant can carry the weight of a culture and the people trying to protect it. Thanks to Agave Heritage Week and Hotel Congress for supporting the screening!
Bella’s Gelato food truck will be on-site Friday night. Bring a chair (we will have some available), and join us for this great film.
