If you like beer, bourbon and barbecue all in one place — with music thrown in for good measure — then you’ll want to find the nearest Beer, Bourbon & BBQ Festival currently on tour of the United States 2017.
The festival will feature 40 bourbons and 60 beers on tap and a selection of barbecue, including pulled pork, ribs, brisket, chicken and sausages.
The regular admission of $40 provides for unlimited beer and bourbon tastings (in a souvenir glass that comes with the purchase of a ticket) from 2 to 6 p.m. Barbecue is sold à la carte. A $49 VIP ticket allows entry at noon. TIP: Check Groupon and Living Social for deals in your city before the event.
The event also features seminars with master distillers, brewmasters and pit masters, as well as live music on the main stage. Bring chairs, blankets and valid IDs, but no umbrellas or tents. Snacks and nonalcoholic beverages are welcome, but bags and coolers will be subject to search. Cash is a good idea in case some vendors do not accept credit cards. Last call is 5:45 p.m.
A portion of proceeds goes to Spirit of Hope Children’s Foundation.
