🥃 OFFICIAL ANNOUNCEMENT – SEPT 11th, 2020 🥃
Bourbon & BBQ Fest is postponed till October 1st, 2021. Please understand the situation. We have not made this choice because we want to. Main reason is that none of the reps from each brand are able to come. Their companies have said they are not allowed to attend any events. So we have no speakers. We hate the fact we can’t do our events. This year has been horrible for Taste CLE and it’s staff.
HOW THINGS WILL WORK
All tickets are still good for October event. The lineup is the same as well. It’s the same event, just pushed back. We only have one person working for Taste CLE right now because of layoffs. She is overwhelmed with customer service between all our event postponements so please be kind to her and patient. There are a few options.
1. Keep your ticket for October and as a BONUS … all guests that keep their ticket active will be entered into a raffle. We will be giving away free VIP upgrades, also giving out some gifts from the distilleries such as a barrel and free tastings with tour. We want to show our appreciation for those that keep their tickets for the September date so that’s why we are doing this raffle and giving back to those that keep their tickets.
2. You can use the price you spent for these tickets as an in house credit with Taste CLE and apply that to any event we throw moving forward. So if you don’t want to wait till September, you can use the money for an event that is coming sooner.
3. Refund. Our only snag with this is that our merchant account informed us that we can not do refunds for transactions over a certain period of time. If you truly need the money back, we will find a way to get a refund to you. We are respectfully asking everyone to keep their tickets because we have no staff and are already behind on customer service. It would just be a huge help.
Please consider option #1. We have been doing these event for years now and it gets better and better each year. We realize $35 to some is no big deal but also respect that $35 is needed by some especially these days. We just hope you can hold your ticket till new date. And who knows, you may be one of the lucky winners of FREE TICKETS, DISTILLERY GIFTS or the GRAND PRIZE BASKET.

SAMPLING TICKET WORTH OVER $80
A true bourbon & bbq lovers dream come true !!!!
VIP begins at 6pm
Everyone else starts at 7pm
This event is truly for everyone as there will be over 30 different bourbons, seminars, food and live music. Many of these bourbons are very hard to get and we can only get a few bottles. We do not guarantee all brands and bottles will be available throughout the entire event. There will be a full cash bar for those that buy non sampling tickets. So you can buy beer, wine and cocktails from the bar throughout the night.
All those that purchase a sampling ticket will get one raffle ticket included. Additional raffle tickets can be purchased for $5 each. There will be a bunch of bourbon items that will be raffled off that night. Tours at distilleries, brand gear, bourbon barrels and more. You pick the item you want and put your raffle ticket in that box.
All proceeds from raffle go to Coins Help K9s

** Get a chance to try the super rare items that will run out.
You will get 14 sample tickets that you can use for any of the bourbons or beers you want. You will also get a souvenir as a ticket holder. Bourbons are expensive and sell for over $10 a shot in most cases. And many of these bourbons are very rare and hard to get. You will end up getting over 8 ounces of various goodness. That’s well over $80 in bourbon plus your souvenir. With a ticket price of around $55, this is an amazing deal and a great way to try some rare and special bourbons.
Then you have the FOOD part of the event. There will be different restaurants with tents selling specialty BBQ dishes to everyone. A full list of participating restaurants will be posted soon.
And how can you have a party without live music?
6pm – TBA
8:30pm – Post Road Country
Some of Participating Bourbon Brands
We stress being responsible, so please use Uber/Lyft or get a room at aLoft as we will be opening up rooms for the event. Spending $50 on Uber/Lyft is easily worth not getting a dui or more importantly an accident where you can hurt yourself and/or others. Please drink responsibly.
