Christmas in July

By: Amanda Narcisi

A common theme around bars and restaurants this month is Christmas in July. Bars and restaurants store away kegs of Christmas Beer like Mad Elf just for a special summer push. Wigle Whiskey is no different.

Tucked away are two barrels of Smoked Bourbon and they will be released this Thursday July 21st. These two barrels will be the last until Summer 2017. The barrels will make roughly 125 full size bottles and 250 half size bottles and will be released at a party at the Barrelhouse and Whiskey Garden. The bottles will be first come first serve since this is a limited release. Drinks at the celebration will include boozy bourbon milkshakes and mint juleps. Music will be provided by AE Honick and food will be from Pittsburgh Smokehouse. The celebration is called the Surprise Twin Barrel Release Party. Admission is $15 and includes cocktail, milkshake, bourbon sampling and live music. In honor of the name of the event, “Surprise Twin Barrel Release Party” identical twins will receive free admission.

If you were still hunting for a bottle of Smoked Bourbon or wanted to add to your fun for the week then see you there! Cheers
