Bourbon 101

New2Lou is wrapping up their Bourbon education series with Bourbon 103 on May 24 at Moonshine University at the Distilled Spirits Epicenter – 801 S. Eighth Street.

Even if you’ve missed Bourbon 101 and 102, you’re invited to attend this interactive class.

Hawthorn Beverage Group, spirits consultants and marketers, have co-sponsored the entire series. The final event will allow students to get their hands on real bourbon distilling equipment.

For students who have completed all three classes there will be a graduation party at the Silver Dollar on Frankfort Avenue (transportation provided!) following Bourbon 103.

Even if you’re not a graduate, you can still attend the class and the celebration. The event is open to the public and tickets are $40 per person. The class starts at 6 p.m. For more information and to purchase tickets, visit, or email Stacey Servo at [email protected].

New2Lou helps newcomers to Louisville connect with each other and with the city. Servo says that New2Lou and Hawthorn Group will offer the Bourbon 101-102-103 program again.
