Holler Festival 2017: A Celebration of Kentucky Craft Beer & Spirits @ New Riff Distilling
Apr 15 @ 6:00 pm – 10:00 pm
Holler Festival 2017: A Celebration of Kentucky Craft Beer & Spirits @ New Riff Distilling | Newport | Kentucky | United States

WHY THIS FESTIVAL?

Simply put, we want to introduce you to the people we know who love making great craft beer and spirits.  Kentucky’s great old Bourbon distilleries have long enjoyed a camaraderie, fellowship, and cooperation that comes from a shared passion in bourbon. Today, New Riff, Ei8ht Ball and the breweries and distilleries you’ll meet over the weekend want to extend that tradition. We’re all of us proud to be making high quality libations in a state with an incredibly rich history of just that. Although the whole world knows the big Bourbon distilleries, we want to create a space where the smaller stills can share, taste, and talk with all of you.

WHY CRAFT?

Craft is the preservation of doing things the slow and careful way, the continuation of traditional foodways—or in our case, drinkways. Craft is putting flavor first and shareholder profit never. Craft is collaborative, communal, cutting edge and caring. We are all craft—legal definition be damned—and all about process, independence, and quality of product.

WHY KENTUCKY?

Kentucky is celebrated around the world for fine flavor. We never did stray too far from the farm, and we have the patience to see good flavor through to the end: think of nearly five million barrels of Bourbon aging here and you’ll understand. There is just something special about Kentucky—the water, the grains, the air, the people. For most of us, it is not only home, but our passion, career, family, and life’s work.

Tour of Vendome Copper & Brass Works with the Bourbon Brotherhood @ Vendome Copper & Brass Works
Apr 26 @ 5:30 pm – 7:30 pm

For over 100 years, Vendome Copper and Brass Works has been fabricating and supplying stills, cookers, vats and other metal equipment to distilleries. Vendome was founded in Louisville by W. Elmore Sherman, Sr. and is now overseen by the fourth generation of the Sherman family.

On April 26, the Bourbon Brotherhood will get a private, behind the scenes tour of Vendome Copper and Brassworks to learn how these craftsmen create functional pieces of distillation artwork.

Our tour guide will be Shawn Stevens. Shawn has been working in the Sheet Metal Union since 1978, longer than any other Vendome employee. He is passionate about bourbon and has a certification from the Distilled Spirits Epicenter as a Whiskey Ambassador with the Stave and Thief Society. Shawn was recently invited to speak at New Mexico State University in both a classroom environment and at a community tasting.

After looking at all that distillery equipment, you’re sure to be thirsty and hungry, so we’ll adjourn to a speakeasy to satisfy both. Behind Butchertown Grocery is a little stairway that leads upstairs to Lola’s lounge.

We’ve reserved the entire speakeasy for the Brotherhood. Appetizers will be provided including baked stuffed mushrooms, pork belly skewers and their special “game changer” charcuterie board with a variety of specialty meats.

And of course we’ll have awesome door prizes as always. The Bourbon Brotherhood is a monthly gathering of men who enjoy bourbon and camaraderie. Is this politically correct? Probably not.
