USA: The Forecastle Bourbon Lodge, Forecastle Festival’s acclaimed Kentucky Bourbon Trail outpost, will give fans hailing from all over the country access to in-depth educational panels, speakers and demonstrations with industry icons and experts this year.

The Fireside Chats, presented by Liquor Barn and curated by The Wall Street Journal best-selling author Fred Minnick, offer an intimate, living room setting for fans wanting to engage with the industry’s best and brightest leaders, manufactures, retailers, master distillers, and more.

“I believe in bourbon education, and our Fireside Chats capture the essence of American whiskey history and the craftsmanship behind bourbon,” said Minnick. “But really, most people only care about the whiskey, and the Forecastle Rarities Bar knocks it out of the park. You’ll find exclusive whiskeys here and I’ll explain why this whiskey is the rarest stuff on earth.”

Releases from the Forecastle Rarities Bar will coincide with each panel. The schedule of releases is forthcoming. The full breakdown of the Bourbon Lodge Fireside Chats can be found here.
