What You'll Get
Today’s whole-hog side deal for boozy bourbon and finely fermented ales will satisfy every man, woman, and hermaphroditic horse (we named it Cinnamon). For $30, you get VIP admission to the Beer, Bourbon, and BBQ Festival on Saturday, May 8, from noon to 6 p.m. at Symphony Park at SouthPark Mall (a $45 value). Your ticket gets you unlimited samples of 60 beers and 40 bourbons with your own souvenir tasting glass and T-shirt, as well as access to live music for your surreptitious enjoyment. Don’t let your lack of a babysitter keep you at home—kids 12 and younger 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 Evan Williams Single Barrel and Eagle Rare 10-year.
For the malt and hop lover, the fest also boasts an array of satisfyingly sophisticated beers, such as Sweetwater Brewing Co.'s 420 Extra Pale Ale, Oskar Blues Old Chub, and Carlsberg. Pick up some barbecue to pad your stomach for the next round of tasting, sit back and listen to live music, or challenge your buddy to a no-holds-barred game of cornhole. 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 sidle up to the festival’s other fun contests. Check out the schedule to plan your entire day at Beer, Bourbon, and BBQ Festival.
