    Favorite Pics of Parker Beam

    To celebrate Parker & Linda Beam's 35th Anniversary today, I initiate this thread to share favorite pics of the great Master Distiller of Heaven Hill.

    This is one of my favorite pics taken at the Gazebo during the 2003 Kentucky Bourbon Festival. Parker is using das über sb.com glassware -- a Barrel_Proof approved Erlenmeyer flask!

    Here's a pic from the 2009 KBF. I won the bourbon toasting contest and was presented a barrel head. At the All Star Sampler event, Parker and Craig Beam were nice enough to sign my barrel head and chat with me for a few minutes. Fun time with good people.

    Here's another favorite from an early KBF Sampler when it was held at the Civil War Museum. It was way fun in those days.Cliff and Parker.jpg

    Re: Favorite Pics of Parker Beam

    I didnt get a pic but I was fortunate enough to meet the man several years ago at the Bourbon House in NOLA during a NOBS event. Mr. Parker himself poured me my very first glass of EWSB.

    Good one, Joe. That must have been a very special day!
