We offer a wide variety of Bourbon Cocktails, allowing you to indulge in the rich and distinct flavors of this iconic spirit. With dozens of different Bourbons to explore, you can savor the complexity and depth that each unique bottle has to offer.

 But the Bourbon Experience Tent doesn't stop at just tasting. We also provide engaging activities to enhance your knowledge and appreciation of Bourbon. Join in on our Trivia sessions and put your Bourbon expertise to the test, competing with fellow enthusiasts for the ultimate bragging rights. If you're new to Bourbon or keen to expand your understanding, our Bourbon 101 sessions will guide you through the history, production methods, and tasting techniques of this beloved spirit.

 In addition to all things Bourbon, we proudly offer Christian Moelein Beer 101s, where you can learn about the rich brewing traditions and techniques behind this local craft beer.
