While some enjoy the luxury of being led around on a special guided tour, others like the adventure of exploring on their own.

Bourbon, Brandy and Beer Weekend
Watch and learn how they distill, craft or brew Bourbon, Brandy and Beer, then get a taste – only in Louisville.
Bourbon’s back in Louisville in some very big ways. In the bars and restaurants, of course. But did you know we’re distilling it in the city again. Just like we did back in the good ’ol days before Prohibition when Louisville was a Bourbon mecca thanks to the large number of offices and warehouses along “Whiskey Row.” Take a trip back down Main Street’s “Whiskey Row” and get a taste of how we make America’s Native Spirit around here at the Evan William’s Experience and the new Bulleit Frontier Whiskey Experience at Stitzel Weller.
While the taste of Bourbon is still fresh on your palette, hop on over to the New Copper & Kings American Brandy in Butchertown for a taste of some Dynamic American Style Brandy distilled in American Copper potstills, then matured in Bourbon barrels. Yum.
Don’t forget to get the full taste of what we offer here by checking out Lou’s Brews,14 unique craft breweries and gastropubs in and around town where you need to stop and take a sip or two on your stay. They offer seasonal tap changes to go along with savory local eats to give you an experience that’s nothing but full flavored.
Of course, Louiville offers a number of award-winning bars and restaurants to make your tasty weekend escape one that you’ll be planning to take again the moment you get home. After all, you will be in The Culinary Capital of Bourbon Country.
