The Beer, Bourbon & BBQ Festival

It seems that the snow will stay with us for a while in the Big Apple. Instead of worrying or complaining about it, have some beer, bourbon and BBQ! The Second Annual Beer, Bourbon & BBQ Festival is returning to Manhattan for a second year in a row to LA.VENUE (608 West 28th Street (between 11th & 12th Ave.)  on January 29, 2011. The all-you-care-to-taste extravaganza is being held in two sessions: The Bacon Session Noon – 4pm and The Whole Hog Session 5:30pm – 9:30pm.

All ticket holders will receive a souvenir glass to sample over 60 beers and 40 bourbons while enjoying bluegrass music and plenty of barbeque from pulled pork, beef, brisket, chicken, ribs, country sides and more. Master Distillers from the big Kentucky Bourbon Houses, Master Brewers from Internationally renowned breweries and Pitmasters from North Carolina, Maryland and Texas will be on hand with hands-on demonstrations and tasting classes. 

Isn't it a nice consolation for the cold January days?
