Bourbon Series: 101

Whether you are New2Bourbon or the Bourbon Geek? We’ve got your back. We want you to be well educated and armed with bourbon knowledge because we live here in Bourbon Country, it’s your duty! Even if you’re not a newbie and you know a thing or two about bourbon, you’ll learn plenty more, trust us. The class will leave with you a greater appreciation of bourbon and some great new friends as well, cause you know, that’s what we do, connect cool folks like you. Good times guaranteed and here are some photos to prove it!

Join us on Thursday (3/28) at 6 pm in the private speakeasy-style space above the Silver Dollar, hip honky-tonk bar in a renovated fire station on historic Frankfort Avenue. Fun Fact: they have a selection of 70+ Kentucky bourbons and ryes, one of the largest in the city. Yep, that’s why we we love them and you will too.

The Hawthorne Beverage Group, leaders in the spirits consulting and marketing, will be there to provide you with the a ton of bourbon knowledge, history of bourbon and the distillery process, and great insider tips. Sounds amazing huh? And the best part is this is an interactive course, so that means you get to taste the bourbons, discuss among friends and decide which one is your favorite. All while socializing with the coolest new folks in town. Sold yet?

Tickets are $30 per person and space is limited, so get on it. And be prepared to walk away with some awesome bourbon swag too, cause we’re cool like that.

Following the event, we’ll head downstairs to our own reserved section at the whiskey bar to test out our mad, new bourbon skills. It will be just like our awesome 2nd Wed Socials, but maybe a little better, because you’ll be all warm and fuzzy from the bourbon and you’ll have a group of new found friends to share your experience with. We’ll have drink specials, of course bourbon will be at the top of the list, light bites and an awesome photographer to capture all the fun with your new bff.


A big thanks to our amazing sponsors Old Forester Bourbon, High West Distillery, Wild Turkey, Woodford Reserve and Bourbon Built!
