Groupon should be offered an option for VIP and platinum purchases-- from the sponsor. Festival ok; ran out of some libations too early. Great they included flavored rum, few whiskeys in addition to beer & wine. For a BEER festival, need popular FLAVORED BEERS offered to try. Only 1 flavored seltzer even.

What You'll Get

Jump to: Inferior Alliterative Experiences

Not for teacup pigs or mud-phobic porkers, today’s whole-hog deal for boozy bourbon and finely fermented ales will satisfy every man, woman, and hermaphroditic horse (we named it Cinnamon). Today’s Groupon gets you VIP admission to the Beer, Bourbon, and BBQ Festival on November 7 from noon to 6 p.m. at the Nashville Municipal Auditorium (a $35 value). Your VIP ticket gets you unlimited samples of 60 beers and 40 bourbons with your own souvenir tasting glass, as well as access to live music and a goodie bag of secrets (not homemade fireworks) for your surreptitious enjoyment. Plus, your VIP status gets you two more hours of tasting than normal ticket-holders, so you can get the jump on all your favorite bourbons before the beautiful bottles run dry. Don’t let your lack of a babysitter keep you at home—kids 12 and under get in free.

The massive drink menu from which you’ll get free tastes all day long includes smooth and full-bodied bourbons such as the popular Knob Creek and Basil Hayden, as well as a variety of single-barrel batches and rarer brands such as the Van Winkle 12 Year.

For the malt and hop lover, the fest also boasts an array of satisfyingly sophisticated beers, such as Dogfish Head 90 Minute IPA, Rogue Chocolate Stout, and Bluegrass Brewing Co.’s seasonal Oktoberfest. Pick up some barbecue to pad your stomach for the next round of tasting, and sit back and listen to live crooners [Mason Douglas]http://www.myspace.com/masondouglasmusic) and Randy Kohrs. Mosey into the tasting theater for an educational romp through the fascinating world of beer and bourbon tasting, making, and more. Take a chance and ride the bucking bull, or check out the festival’s other fun contests. Check out the schedule to plan your entire day at Beer, Bourbon, and BBQ Festival.

The Nashville Municipal Auditorium is a spaceship-shaped exhibition space, complete with dome and futuristic crown of lights. The blazing corona of that domed facility can bring grown men to tears as they exit fully sated with good beer, succulent barbecue, and smooth bourbon.
