While Indianapolis-based West Fork Whiskey Co. has been distilling and distributing craft whiskey for three years, it will host The Spirit of Whiskey party on Saturday, November 3rd at 1660 Bellefontaine St. to celebrate one year of opening its Tasting Room.
“Opening our tasting room in the historic Kennedy-King neighborhood has helped to grow our business in ways we couldn’t have predicted. The Spirit of Whiskey event celebrates our friends, family, and patrons who have made that growth possible.”
Doors open to the general public at 2 PM on November 3rd, but people with tickets to the Black Metal BBQ hog roast will be admitted as early as 11 AM. The Spirit of Whiskey celebration includes a number of events throughout the day, including VIP barrel tastings, limited edition poster giveaways, and live music. Full event details are below.
