Bourbon, Brews, & Beverages at Taste of the Bluegrass
The 38th Taste of the Bluegrass was Friday May 18 at Keeneland’s Keene Barn. Taste of the Bluegrass is an annual fundraiser for God’s Pantry Food Bank. More than 50 of the region’s best food and beverage vendors offered tastes of their best food and drinks. Attendees were able to sample from all the vendors for no added cost, and many vendors also gave away free stickers or coupons. The event was also accompanied by live music from The Mercy Men.
One would think that Taste of the Bluegrass is all about the food. But on the contrary, bourbon, brews, and beverages are a big part of the Bluegrass. In fact, a good portion of the vendors were beverage centered. Craft brewing was represented by Blue Stallion, Braxton Brewing, Country Boy, Jarfly Brewing, West Sixth, and many more. A few Kentucky distilleries were also in attendance, such as Alltech (Town Branch), Castle & Key, and Four Roses.
Taste of the Bluegrass is a great way to experience the best food and drinks the Bluegrass has to offer, while also supporting God’s Pantry Food Bank. Going to Taste of the Bluegrass gives one the ability to try things that they may not be comfortable enough with to order at a restaurant. It also affords people the opportunity to speak with owners, chefs, brewers, and experienced team members of their favorite establishment.
Taste of the Bluegrass raises money for God’s Pantry. At God’s Pantry Food Bank aims to provide efficient, effective ways for hungry people to meet their basic food and nutrition needs. Through partnerships, God’s Pantry Food Bank provides more than 121,400 meals every day for hungry people in Central and Eastern Kentucky across our 50-county service area.
