About Detroit Bourbon Fest
If there’s any better way to ring in fall by sipping smooth bourbon, it’s sipping dozens of them. Detroit Bourbon Fest invites guests to do just that. The indoor event takes place on Boat House on Belle Isle, where guests can sample over a hundred whiskeys, including several rare ones such as Blanton’s Weller, Colonel E.H. Taylor, Elmer T. Lee and more.
Although bourbon is the main attraction, there will also be a limited about of beer, cider, and wine offered. Meanwhile, attendees can satisfy their hunger by checking out local fare at nearby local food trucks while enjoying performances from live musicians.
