Kentucky Derby

Alright, I have another day off, so… while I was cruising on the internet, my wife was watching Today show… They have a drink at the Brown hotel with some bourbon and tequila mixed drink, with a few chunks of ice and weed wacker material in it… $1500.00 !!:dizzy_face: And my wife thinks I’ve got an expensive hobby… :smirk: Sneezles61

Pfft…some of those womens’ crazy derby hats cost that much! hahaha I’ll stick with a mint julep and a few beer chasers!

My middle son was born on Derby Day 27 years ago.

I wonder if you really can taste the difference between a $1000 and $1500 cocktail.

Rumor is $1000 vs $1500 is comparable to 90IBU vs 100IBU.

My ex wife from louisville. Kentucky. Been to the derby once. And did miss it sit a a bar drinking. The race over before you know.

The $1500 one is less grainy

I’m originally from Lexington, KY. I’ve been to the derby a couple of times and barely saw part of the race every time. It was a fun party though!

Must use Rahr prior to distillation.

@dannyboy58 I’ve heard it’s an amazing party!

1500.00 uses imported grain… 1000.00… well lets not go there… :confounded: Sneezles61

Brown Hotel (Louisville).

Stayed there on my Honeymoon over 30 years ago with my wife (still married)
then flew off to Hawaii.

Only the last 5 years has she been married to a brewing monster.
