Beer Bourbon and BBQ Festival

Whole Hog Sessions last night at Beer Bourbon and BBQ Festival at National Harbor, DC Metro area’s Tom Fischer gives a “State of the Union” address on whiskey today at the Beer, Bourbon, & BBQ Festival at National Harbor, Maryland, D.C. Metro area and introduces several new whiskey cocktails.
“Capitolizes” on our appearance in our nation’s capitol with a tribute to an old American favorite in Wild Turkey and The Copper Fox Distillery, a new American craft distiller based near D.C. Our Capitol Cocktail recipes below, created by Mixologist Stephen Dennison, will stimulate your taste buds and leave you lobbying for more pours!
