BGT's Bourbon and Brews on Broadway:
Save the date! Saturday, July 21, 2018
The Blue Grass Trust launched Bourbon & Brews on Broadway (BBoB for short) on July 22, 2017, featuring art by Kiptoo Tarus, marvelous music from Joslyn and The Sweet Compression, great silent and live auction items, local brews from West Sixth, Country Boy, Mirror Twin, and Ethereal Brewing, great food by Catering by Donna, and of course Kentucky Bourbon Signature Drinks, thanks to Maker's Mark. This party of historic proportions was such a success, thanks in good measure to our 2017 presenting sponsors, Jon Carloftis Fine Gardens and Maker's Mark, it will now be an annual event for the BGT. The event is held on the BGT's campus which includes the adjoining Hopemont/Hunt-Morgan House and the Dr. Thomas Hunt Morgan House. We are happy to announce Jon Carloftis Fine Gardens has already re-upped as a presenting sponsor for next year's BBoB, to be held on July 21, 2018.
