Boasting 60 beers and 40 bourbons, the Beer, Bourbon & BBQ Festival’s expansive drink menu electrifies revelers and sets the scene for a day of barbecue, live music, and contests. Smooth and full-bodied bourbons by George Dickel, Evan Williams, and High West help to shake off the workweek blues, and a plethora of satisfyingly sophisticated beers, such as Dogfish Head 90 Minute IPA and Stoudts Winter Ale, soothe fears of getting tangled in someone else’s dream catcher. Tasting supplies are limited so liquorologists who wish to study each taste should plan on arriving early to choose from the widest selection. A tender spread of fixin’-laden pulled pork options–available via la carte pricing–awaits all VIPs, and the lineup of live bluegrass and rock bands keep ear-tummies stuffed with their signature blend of tunes. Sweet-n-spicy ribs, brisket, and flavorful sausage supplement the complimentary barbecue feast.

Attendees can check out a variety of entertaining events, including seminars led by brewmasters and master distillers that give alcohol artisans an inside look into the creation and bottling of beverages. Throughout the afternoon, more fun events roll through, such as the Best Beer Belly contest, live music, and the chance to slow dance with a rib sandwich.

Beer, Bourbon & BBQ Festival

Forty varieties of bourbon and 60 beer draughts flow freely from taps into souvenir glasses, slaking thirsty throats with unlimited sips as guests tear through smoky meat concoctions at the Beer, Bourbon & BBQ Festival's tasting stations. Once stuffed with ribs, brisket, and sausage, attendees can retire to the tasting theater to take in a seminar from pit masters and gourmet chefs on preparing fine barbecue or brewing stellar bourbon. Live rock, blues, and bluegrass bands set the airwaves quivering from the main stage with wailing tunes or announcements drawn in barbecue sauce. A cigar tent provides a smoky haven for puffing on fine tobacco products, and big-screen TVs beam the latest sports action directly into eyeballs.
