In celebration and honor of the great state of Kentucky and its spirit and soul: bourbon, Danny Wimmer Presents is proud to announce the first-ever Bourbon & Beyond, a festival taking place on Saturday, September 23 and Sunday, September 24, 2017 in Louisville, Kentucky. Blending the best elements of a bourbon festival, a food festival, and a music festival into an all-encompassing, unforgettable weekend, Bourbon & Beyond will be an enriching weekend featuring master distillers, Michelin-starred chefs, world-class musicians, and other craftsmen and craftswomen.
In addition to the finest Kentucky bourbons, Bourbon & Beyond will partner with renowned local chefs and restaurants to deliver uniquely delectable creations. Various immersive bourbon experiences, interactive workshops, culinary demonstrations, and plenty of exciting surprises will run throughout the weekend. Additional nighttime events and tours will be available, as well as pre- and post-festival happenings extending into Louisville and the greater Kentucky area.
Bourbon & Beyond’s goal is to produce the finest festival worthy of the finest spirit. With a history stretching back nearly to the founding of this great nation, bourbon is a congressionally-designated distinctive product of the United States – the only spirit to enjoy such protection. From Bourbon Country’s distilleries to Louisville’s legendary Urban Bourbon Trail, the soul of bourbon is prevalent throughout the great state of Kentucky. The “Bourbon” in Bourbon & Beyond unites the world together to celebrate the legacy and innovation of the spirit. The “Beyond” represents our inclusive approach and expansive vision in creating a truly groundbreaking festival. Altogether, Bourbon & Beyond is a celebration of craftsmanship, soul, and spirit.
