COVID-19 UPDATE:  Due to the pandemic event, our regular events schedule is on hold while our tasting room is closed to the public. However! We are going to start experimenting with to-go cocktails and hosting distancing-friendly, drive-in comedy every Saturday in May, details below…

Synner Saturdays Drive-In Live Comedy

Live Stand Up Comedy is back at the Syntax Distillery! The weekend after the “safer-at-home” order starts, MeanderThal Productions is here to help you adjust to the the new normal with a Drive-In Live Comedy Show in the west parking lot. Please note that Syntax will NOT be open for takeout bottles or drinks within half an hour of the show, in order to discourage people from leaving their cars en masse and creating a risky situation in view of Weld County being a COVID-19 hotspot.
Syntax will be doing a separate experiment with “To-Go” cocktails on Saturdays, with strict social distancing measures in place, from 5-7:30 pm before comedy starts. Details are below, and thank you for your patience! This is an experiment for everyone and we’re trying to find a way to provide fun, safe activities within the bounds of often-confusing, rapidly-changing alcohol laws.
Anyway! This is done just like the drive-in movies — you stay in your cars, tune in on your FM radio, and enjoy a live stage show from the relative comfort of your automotive womb! We’re planning to do this every Saturday night in May, and continue re-evaluating the situation for softly re-opening the cocktail bar
On the inaugural night, Saturday, May 2nd, MeanderThal Productions has booked touring comedian Curt Fletcher, feature comic Mandy Kay, plus special guests to be announced. Parking starts at 7p, show starts 8p. $10 cover or $20/car.

Synner Saturdays ToGo Cocktails

We’re dipping a toe in the re-opening water with our new Saturday afternoon TOGO Happy Hours! Keeping everyone safe and healthy is our first concern, but we think that we may be able to offer a little relief in the time of the New Normal with minimal risk. Here’s our tentative plan for the first couple of Saturdays in May:

We’ve picked a tasty, simplified menu of cocktails that we think will travel well, and you can come get yours from 5-7:30 pm, before drive-in comedy starts at 8. Strict social distancing procedures will be in place…order on one deck, pick up your order on the other. Please wear masks and obey the signs and markings on the ground, we’ll be masked and gloved for your safety and ours. You’re welcome to text orders to 970-224-1248 and we can deliver to your car, but we’ll need to verify your ID and process your payment inside our tasting room.

Cocktails will be mixed without ice so that you can enjoy them at a later time without ice melting in them prematurely. If you’d like a container of ice on the side, we can do that. Here are our first week’s offerings, available while supplies last:

Mint Julep — Straight Syntax Bourbon, fresh mint, and real sugar syrup. Pour over ice at home and Mmmm.

Mojito — Syntax White or Heavy Rum, fresh mint, fresh lime, and a splash of real sugar. Pour over ice and enjoy.

Gimlet — Syntax Rose Gin, fresh-squeezed lime juice, keffir lime, and sugar. Shake with ice and strain if you like.

Cape Cod — Syntax Crystal Vodka and fresh-squeezed lime juice, with our fancy craft cranberry juice. Simple, classic, and delicious…just pour over ice.

Small is $10 and holds two standard drinks (~1.5-2 oz alcohol per drink + mixers) and large is $20 and holds four standard drinks.

And if you’re after something a little….extra….

Deconstructed Bloody Mary — Syntax Crystal Vodka and Horsetooth Hot Sauce mix. Our crazy array of garnishes served on the side for you to add at home. Bloody Marys are $15 for small and $30 for large.

…..AND FOR WHEN THE WORLD REOPENS FOR REAL….
