Town Branch Distillery May 2017

The Kentucky and Bluegrass Regions came together for the second time this year for a drive to the Town Branch Distillery in Lexington.  We had about a dozen cars start out in Louisville and we took a scenic route toward our lunch spot in Midway where we would meet up with the members from the Bluegrass Region.   The back roads of Kentucky are an absolute joy this time of year.  We did catch up to a rather large piece of farm equipment moving along our route and it was impressive to watch oncoming traffic navigate it way around.  Soon enough our paths diverged and we were able to proceed.    We stopped for lunch at Mezzo Italian Cafe in Midway and they did a great job for us.  It was quite the sight seeing the town square filled with all of our cars.   After lunch, we continued our journey into Lexington and visited Town Branch Distillery.  This is also home to the Alltech Brewery which is the maker of beers such as Kentucky Ale, Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Ale and Kentucky Kolsch.  This facility is located just a short walk from Rupp Arena.  The visitor center, distillery and brewery are all closely situated and as a part of the tour you have the option to sample four of any of their products.  One of my favorite samples was Bluegrass Sundown which is a dark roasted coffee infused with Kentucky bourbon and sugar.
