A Whiskey Festival With 60 Varieties and a Concert by St. Paul & The Broken Bones Is Coming to Denver

On Friday, October 18, The WhiskyX is taking over Denver’s Wings Over the Rockies Air & Space Museum from 6 to 10 p.m. Die-hard whiskey (and whisky) enthusiasts and budding whiskey imbibers alike may taste over 60 rare and emerging varieties from Bourbon, Scotch, single malt, American blend, rye, Canadian and Irish categories, with expert brand ambassadors and distillery representatives. Attendees will also be able to soak up their whiskey-filled bellies with selections from some of Denver’s finest food trucks and enjoy a live performance by the Birmingham, Alabama-based high-voltage soul band, St. Paul & the Broken Bones.
