Riverside Cigar Shop and Lounge will welcome Lexington Brewing and Distilling Company master distiller Mark Coffman for a tasting of Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Ale and Town Branch Bourbon this Friday, Feb. 21, from 5-9 p.m.

If you’re a cigar lover and wondered what adult beverages pair best with those tobacco torpedoes, Coffman and Riverside Cigar Shop and Lounge co-owner Jeff Mouttet will be on hand to give their suggestions and socialize.
Several years after creating its wildly popular Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Ale, Lexington Brewing built a distillery that has created two brands: Town Branch Bourbon and Pearse Lyons Reserve Malt Whiskey. Both are award-winning spirits produced in Lexington, at what is the town’s first distillery in about a century.
Located at 201 Spring St. in Jeffersonville, Riverside has developed a fine reputation locally for its smokes-and-sips events. If you like a smoke-filled room to go with your smoky spirits and beers, you should give it a try.
Lexington Brewing and Distilling Company’s mission since it started brewing Kentucky Ale® in 2000. Within hours of mature Kentucky bourbon leaving the barrel, Kentucky Ale takes up a six-week residence in the used cask, creating a distinctive taste, color and fragrance.
