Haymarket Whiskey History Class – Monday, August 4 (7-9 PM)

filename-img-0029-jpg Every Monday is our usual KoPo BBQ freak out.  But this Monday we are pleased to present A Whiskey History Class with our pal, Matthew Landan, of the Haymarket Whiskey Bar in Louiseville Kentucky. Haymarket Whiskey Bar, a proud member of the Urban Bourbon Trail and one of Thrillist’s Top 22 whiskey bars in America will be offering a whiskey history class at Maria’s Packaged Goods and Community Bar on Monday, August 4 (7-9 PM). Officially titled American Whiskey History and Modern Bourbon Marketing, this class is hosted by in-house specialist Matthew Landan. Maggie Kimberl of Louisville.com recently wrote “It connected bits of information in a totally new way that made me appreciate my Kentucky and Louisville heritage that much more.”
The class begins with a thorough introduction to the history of American whiskey from pre-Revolutionary War to Prohibition, how to read a bourbon bottle label, and about the big eight producer distillers. The second portion of the talk teaches you everything you need to know about modern bourbon marketing.
Matthew Landan is a jack-of-all-trades, working as everything from a translator for Telecom Italia Lab to a journalist for Italy Daily and Dow Jones Newswires to a Cracker Jack vendor at the world famous Wrigley Field. A world traveller, Landan finally planted his feet in the rustic and culture-rich Louisville, Ky. He launched his first business, Derby City Espresso, specializing in artisan third wave espresso drinks and craft beer on April Fool’s Day 2007. But this is bourbon county, and Landan became entranced by the culture. He opened Haymarket Whiskey Bar in 2012 – a unique bourbon bar boasting nearly 200 unique bourbons, over 100 bourbons, and great beer and spirits. In 2015 he plans to open Louisville’s first ever and only 24-hour Chicago-style kosher deli.
This event is free (no reservations required).
