Kentucky is the epicenter of Bourbon – seriously, 95% of the world’s Bourbon is produced here! As a result, Forecastle is about much more than just the music. The Forecastle Bourbon Lodge has grown into a Forecastle headliner all its own, featuring local eats, drinks, and festival perks that are unrivaled! For the second year, we are partnering with the Kentucky Bourbon Trail to make our Bourbon Lodge a truly immersive experience, with additional culinary experiences, bourbon activities, and more!
New this year, the Lodge will introduce the Bourbon Cares program, a unique partnership between several bourbon brands and Forecastle bands, featuring special single-barrel selections, available only in the Forecastle Bourbon Lodge. Members of Spoon will hand-select a barrel from Four Roses Bourbon, JJ Grey & Mofro from Heaven Hill, and Spanish Gold from Woodford Reserve. Proceeds from Bourbon Cares will benefit The Forecastle Foundation.
In addition, we’ll be presenting an exclusive culinary experience from some of Louisville’s top restaurant chefs and creators: Adam Burress and Chase Mucerino of Hammerheads, Game, and new favorite Loop 22. They’ll bring their expertise to an exclusive, pop-up restaurant within the Lodge.
Come try a taste of Kentucky with the Forecastle Festival and celebrate bourbon responsibly!
All ages allowed into the Bourbon Lodge / Must be 21+ to enjoy Bourbon.
