Presented by Lexie Krall, Old Forester Market Manager
About the Event:
We all need something to celebrate this year and Old Forester has delivered again! Enjoy a lineup of past birthday bourbons and compare them to this year’s release in the cozy setting of the Harry Waugh Dessert Room at Bern’s Steak House. Chef Habteab Hamde and his team have prepared five courses of mouthwatering steakhouse cuisine to pair perfectly with each sip of bourbon. Old Forester’s Market Manager Lexie Krall will guide us through each expression in the delightful setting of our infamous Champagne Room.
There will be extremely limited seating for this event. Seating requests will be accommodated when possible, however maintaining proper distancing between patrons does impact our flexibility. Please keep in mind these bourbons are bottled at high proof and prepare for safe transportation home from the event.
