Whisky in the Water

Brodie Mueller

Downtown Samples Whisky Tasting Event

On Thursday, May 21, Scott Peterson’s historic Appel Building was taken over by a whisky tasting event. The main floor of this building (formerly Play It Again Sports), located at 224 S. Main is currently empty, yet is prepped for a hip new business to move into. This event was a perfect opportunity to not only show off the space to the public, but was a fun time for sampling whisky and food flavored with whisky. Brodie Mueller of Hub City Events along with staff from Pounders tested this inaugural tasting event. Attendance was a little less than hoped for, but samples were had by many. Nearly 40 people paid the $50 ticket price to sample bourbon, rye, and Canadian whiskies as well as cocktails. A full bar was also available for other types of drinks. They did an excellent job of creating a urban, metro vibe which was only accentuated by jazz music from Ron Parker and A Dash of Jazz. We hope to see this unique event again in Downtown Main Street. //
