Bourbon & Beyond Adds More Excitement

Bourbon & Beyond, the all-in-one Bourbon, food, and music festival debuting in Louisville on Sept. 23 and 24, just announced the addition of LOVE & FIRE presented by Larceny Bourbon.

With a passion for great food and Bourbon, LOVE & FIRE will celebrate and breathe life into two time honored traditions – cooking over an open fire and telling the fascinating story behind Larceny Bourbon and the legendary John E. Fitzgerald.

Taking place all day on Saturday & Sunday, LOVE & FIRE will feature Larceny Bourbon cocktails and grilled specialties from renowned Louisville Chefs, as well as several surprise guest chefs. Open to all festival goers, every attendee will have the chance to win special prizes by spinning the LOVE & FIRE prize wheel, including a seat at the LOVE & FIRE tasting table where prize winners will learn the intricacies of cooking over a live fire while tasting different dishes paired with Larceny Bourbon.

  • Chef Chris Cosentino of Cockscomb, San Francisco
  • Chef Anthony Falco of Pizza Czar, Brooklyn
  • Chef Amanda Freitag, Judge on “Chopped”
