The Perfect American Pairing: Bourbon & BBQ

Mar 12, 2017

5:00pm – 6:00pm CT

Bourbon has been one of the hottest spirits around for more than a decade and drinkers developed an insatiable thirst for the classic American whiskey. And while the spirit may have a new generation of fans, it pairs beautifully with a historic American favorite: barbecue.

Noah Rothbaum, Chief Cocktail Correspondent at The Daily Beast and author of The Art of American Whiskey, will join Edward Lee, celebrity chef and author of the cookbook Smoke & Pickles, and Andrew Knowlton, Restaurant Editor at Bon Appétit, to explore the classic duo. The panelists will discuss which bourbons work best with specific styles of barbecue and how the right bourbon can bring out the smoky flavor in a brisket.
