Want to try out our latest signature cocktail? Oberon will be serving The Devil’s Tail on May 8th and 9th in conjunction with Babes in Boinkland’s production of Rain Dogs!
The Devil’s Tail
Bourbon, Campari, simple, lemon, and lime.
We feel it embodies the spirit (no pun intended) of Tom Waits and his amazing album Rain Dogs (which was definitely a youthful inspiration to us). Bourbony and bitter.

We are of course dedicated to our cocktail crafting. But we’ve take some pictures of the small plates we offer, so you can nibble while you sip your beverages.
Tomato, Basil, Mozzarella

I inherited a scrapbook from a friend of my Nana when I was 4 or 5 years old. It was lost to time until a couple of years ago when I rediscovered it. It includes many menus, clippings, and photos of places, people, and events from roughly 1930-1940. Many old menus, including the ones below were pasted onto the pages. The scrapbook belonged to Robert M. Gerry, who I did not know. These menus are from immediately post-prohibition 1933-1934.
Here are some of the scans, history freaks like myself, enjoy!
Robert M. Gerry - maker of the scrapbook. I think he was the late husband of the woman who gave it to me, but I don’t really know much about the origin, as everyone has passed away.
We’re teaching two new courses this May at Cambridge Center for Adult Education. We’re really excited and think you’ll love these classes. Our ‘Your Signature Drink’ class sold out. So register soon!
Registration begins today at CCAE.
Cocktails and Literature
Join us in exploring the world of literature through the lens of drink. We’ll create and sample libations including the mead of Beowulf, the Julep of Gatsby, Fear and Loathing’s Singapore Sling, and even the Hitchhiker’s Guide Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster (Earth version). While we enjoy these drinks (and more), we’ll read relevant passages and discuss the long history of alcohol in literature. In addition to novel-specific cocktails, we will also learn about authors’ signature beverages, from Wilde’s properly prepared absinthe to Hemingway’s Papa Doble. You must be 21 or older to enroll in this class. Limited to 16.

Cocktails of the Stars
Would you like to create a divine cocktail straight from the stars? Using your astrology sign, planetary herbs, and chakra colors, you will brew a unique, mystical, signature libation. Booze Époque will provide a lighthearted mini-guide to your Sun and Moon signs as well as an introduction to the sensual and colourful world of craft bartending. An in-depth knowledge of astrology is not necessary; come with a sense of whimsy and the date and location of your birth. You must be 21 or older to enroll in this class. Limited to 16.

Booze Époque has wanted to create a cocktail that celebrates the joy we feel living and working in the colorful communities of Cambridge and Somerville, MA. Both cities are home to many motivated small businesses, amazing farmers markets, and charming grocers where one can find culinary treasures to make their food and beverage experience extraordinary.
BÉ is no stranger to the dynamic flavor profiles of Toscanini’s Ice Cream in Central Square, Cambridge. We chose their Burnt Caramel as a key ingredient in this dreamy cocktail. Our friends, the brewmasters at slumbrew in Somerville, introduced us to Porter Square Porter, its dark chocolate and malty notes were a perfect marriage for this treat.
With great pleasure, BÉ brings to you The Camberville Cream Float.
The Camberville Cream Float
8 ounces of slumbrew Porter Square Porter
2 (or more) scoops of Toscanini’s Burnt Caramel ice cream
2 ounces of Old Monk 7 year blended rum
Sprinkle of black sea salt
Choose your drinking vessel, pour in your Old Monk rum, then slowly pour your slumbrew Porter Square Porter. Top gently with 2 (or more) scoops of Toscanini’s Burnt Caramel ice cream and a generous sprinkle of black sea salt. Nothing will make you smile like this creamy, malty, boozey float. Enjoy with the biggest smile!
