From Mitch Einhorn, owner of Twisted Spoke

Twisted Spoke Presents The Legends of Bourbon.
April 12, 2005, 8pm till the cows come home.

Some people collect Bourbon. We collect bourbon making legends.

The legendary bourbon makers will be guest bartending, smoking cigars and signing bottles. Smoking, drinking and talking about bourbon should be done in its natural environment, a bar. This is not a stuffy store or a formal hotel but the actual habitat of bourbon and its creators. So come express your admiration up close and personal and share your love of bourbon with the men who make it.

This is a rare opportunity to taste a special barrel sample from each bourbon maker.

Dave Pickerell – Maker’s Mark
Fred Noe – Jim Beam
Jimmy Russell – Wild Turkey
Julian Van Winkle – Van Winkle Bourbon
Elmer T. Lee – Blanton’s (Elmer is tentative depending on his health.)

Also in attendance, Chuck Cowdery, author of BOURBON, STRAIGHT: The Uncut and Unfiltered Story of American Whiskey.

For the first time in Chicago, taste the famous Arrogant Bastard Ale, Oak Finished, and the Double Bastard, from Stone Brewing, Malt Advocate Brewery of the Year.

Never has there been so much greatness in one small bar.
