22Stag Dining Group has long been a fan of the craft cocktail scene. So much so that we launched a brother company called Derby Cocktail Co. Derby originates from the Danish “deer village” and draw inspiration from pre-prohibition era cocktails as well as the current craft cocktail renaissance.

With the production and execution background of Stag, Derby is a premier mobile cocktail catering and event operation. In addition to the classics, Derby has an affinity to produce cocktails in creative formats such as fizz cocktails shaken in an antique paintcan shaker, barrel-aged spirituous cocktails, kegged and back-pack cocktails as well as our famous snowcone cocktails. Ethan Terry leads a charming bar team that San Francisco cocktail devotees will clearly recognize. Derby is available for hire for cocktail parties and festivals alike. Custom menu creation, site acquisition and event planning are also offered as services for Derby clients.
