A day of bourbon, brews, BBQ and a whole lot of fun!
Another great year for the Bourbon & Brew Fest that we had the pleasure of being part of.  This annual festival is located at The Heights Waterfront in downtown Tampa along the river walk.  uDream Events bartenders served up delicious cocktails with bourbons from all over the great US including Jim Beam, Makers Mark, Bird Dog Whiskey, Knob Creek, and Jesse James Whiskey; just to name a few.

Here are some of the crowd favorite specialty cocktails created by our mixologists:

“The County Breakfast” – Jim Beam Maple Bourbon, Ginger Ale and a healthy stick of Bacon.

“Bird Dog Peach Tea” – Bird Dog Peach Whiskey, sweet iced tea and a lemon wedge.

“Maker’s Mango Slushy” – Maker’s Mark Whiskey and an icy Mango frozen slushy.

and the ever so popular…

“STFU” – Full Throttle Saloon blackberry, strawberry & apple with a dash of cranberry juice and sprite.

Brew vendors such as Budweiser, SweetWater Brewing Co, and Big Storm Brewing Co, kept those kegs tapped and had the beer flowing!  The live music was steady jamming’ with acts like Craig Campbell, Heather Lucas, Thomas Wynn & The Believers, Southern Train, The Logan Grant Band, and Tampa’s very own Dj Lesage. In between all of the dancing, guests enjoyed the Grand Tasting as well as the mechanical bull and rounds of games like playing corn-hole.  That’s right, I said corn-hole.

A special thanks to Big City Events and Bay Stage Lighting for the amazing production and event decor! Can’t wait until the next Bourbon & Brew Festival in 2015!
