Bourbon & Beyond 2019 took place during the last weekend of summer. With clear blue skies and temperatures in the 90’s, it was an ideal weekend to rock out to music, celebrity chefs, and most importantly, bourbon. You see, Bourbon & Beyond places bourbon as an equal to the music and it was amazing to see the crowd getting into America’s native spirit while rocking out to some amazing artists over the course of three days.
We were happy to play some small part in the festival as we went down to help moderate the Old Fashioned vs Manhattan panel on the Kentucky Gold stage. It was also great to run into so many Breaking Bourbon fans & supporters. So follow along as we visually recap our time at the Bourbon & Beyond 2019. We hope to see you all there next year!
